Welcome to third grade and to my classroom! I am very excited about this school year. This will be my 13th year at Round Hill Elementary. I have been teaching third grade for 7 years. I live in Berryville with my husband, Casey, and two boys, Colby, Caleb and my two boxers Zeus and Cali. My husband is also the Athletic Director and football coach in Clarke County.
Third grade is an amazing year of learning and growing. Students become more independent and responsible this year. 3rd grade students balance independence with collaborative group learning. Students will strengthen reading strategies and become more confident independent readers. Students will learn multiplication/division facts, create stories in Writer's Workshop, explore ancient civilizations, identify and create simple machines, use the scientific method and SO much MORE! We are excited to continue to be a Code to the Future School as we integrate computer science into our 3rd grade curriculum.
Please support your child's academic growth by reading daily and practicing basic math facts. Be sure to check out the 3rd grade Weekly News/Blog for what's happening weekly. It's going to be a great year in 3rd grade at Round Hill Elementary. Be sure to click my Twitter link to see what's happening daily in our classroom. I am looking forward to an exciting year of growing and learning together!
