My Students

3rd grade is such an exciting age! Students are so curious about learning and are becoming more and more independent. Our students learn best when we can make the content relevant and interesting to them and connect new learning to current and past experiences.

Our school is dedicated to maximizing students' full potential in all areas!

We are set in a rural, tight-knit community. We believe that all students can learn and achieve at high levels. We are excited to get this school year started!

My Project

Our 3rd grade team is in need of books to supplement a new and exciting reading adventure , Rooted in Reading, that we are diving into this year! This extension to our reading program has all of the components needed to implement and extend our reading instruction.

The books we are requesting will allow students to make global connections, build background knowledge, and bring reading to life!

This is part of our attempt to make reading fun and encourage students to get excited about their learning! With background videos and maps, interactive comprehension activities, grammar activities, and integrated writing, we are sure to grow our students!
