MATH: We are starting rounding this week and will work on it for the next few weeks. This is a very hard concept for students to master. Below is the family letter from our math work book the explains what we are doing in class. On the second page of the letter, there is an activity to help students with rounding. You are not required to do the activity, it is just a suggestion if you would like your child to practice at home.

ELA: We are starting our Wonders reading program this week. Below is an outline of what we are learning in class. We will also finish our reading diagnostic.

Morning Drop Off

Though parents have been allowed to drop their young students off these past few days, we now ask that students enter the building without adult assistance. Parents of kindergarten students are still welcome to enter the building so their child can be assessed by their teacher. Elementary students should enter the building through the front doors and then go out back through the recess doors. They could also go through the gate between the two buildings to access the back of the school. When the bell rings, they’ll line up as they’ve been taught. Thanks for your understanding in this matter as we try to mitigate student and staff exposure. 

The First Week

We had an amazing first two days of school. Your children already have a place in my heart and I am so excited for the school year. To help you keep on top of what we are doing in class, I will be posting what we are doing every week. Here you will find what we are working on in Math, ELA, and other going ons in our class. I will also post important dates that you will need to remember. Just a reminder that if you have not paid your $30.00 donation for school supplies you can pay it to the office.

YAY!

I am so excited that it is finally back to school night! You can watch the video below, and then if you have any questions, you can join my Zoom meeting from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm tonight (7/18/2020) by clicking here. The password is rams. You can pop in to the meeting and ask questions, you don’t need to stay for the whole meeting. You will be muted when you join, I have to mute everyone or we will hear all the noises from everyone’s houses, you can unmute when it is your turn to ask a question. You can also email me or send me a Bloomz message with any questions you might have 🙂

I also want to mention that you may want to send a couple extra clean masks with your child each day. They tend to get damp and that can be annoying, it would be nice if your child can change into a fresh mask if they need to. Also, the drinking fountains are going to be off limits, so don’t forget to send a water bottle!

School starts in 2 days, I can’t wait!!! We are going to have a great year!!!

Tiffany Brown is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

WELCOME TO 3RD GRADE!

Hello! I hope that you are having a fan”cactus” summer so far and are getting ready for an amazing school year.  I am so EXCITED to have your child in my class this year and I can’t wait to get started.  Back to School Night will be on August 18th and our first day of school will be on August 20th.  The first two days are early out with dismissal at 1:00.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you.  Here are a few things that you can do to get a jump start on the school year:

  • Blog:  Sign up to follow this blog.  This is on the right-hand side of this page.  Once you enter your email in, you will receive an email asking you to verify your email address.  Please do this or you will not be following our class blog.
  • Bloomz Apps:  Use the following link for instructions to connect to our class using the Bloomz App.  I will use this throughout the year to communicate with parents along with the blog.  I use Bloomz a lot so please sign up for Bloomz.  – Bloomz App
  • Class Disclosure Statement: Read and sign the class disclosure statement. – Class Disclosure Statement
  • Parent Survey:  The following link is a short survey to help me get to know your child better.  Please take a few moments to fill it out. – Parent Survey
  • Supply List:  I am asking for money donations in the amount of $30.00 instead of you buying your child’s supplies.  This means that I do all the shopping, labeling, and organizing.  Awesome, right? One less thing that you have to worry about.  However, this does not cover headphones.  Please send those in with your child on the first day of school.  You can click on the Parent Info tab above, or click the link, to find out what your $30.00 will cover. – Supply Link
  • Food Permission Form: This is a blanket food permission form for the entire school year.  The food items on this list are ones that we have used regularly in the past for class parties and for math, science, and ELA lessons.  Please check all of the items that your child can have.  There is a box for substitution suggestions if your child cannot have items on the list.  –Food Permission Form
