A little bit about me...I grew up in Baldwinsville, New York. Snow country! I attended Alfred University where I graduated with a teaching degree in 1986. I have been an elementary school teacher for 17 years. I'm looking forward to a great year in 3rd grade. I truly enjoy teaching and I love seeing the growth each year in my students.
It is so good to see all the boys and girls today and to be back at school. Students will bring home their spelling list in the Take Home folders today along with the spelling homework menu. A few student forgot folders at home. That is ok. Their spelling list will be loose in their backpack. Please put the list and menu in the folder and return the blue Take Home folder each day. Spelling for this week will start with Lesson 2. For homework students choose 1 spelling menu item to turn in by Friday. If students need more practice they are welcome to do what they need to prepare for the test. I have introduced the list and gone over the rule for the lesson 2 list. (vCe word patterns for the long vowel sounds -aka sneaky silent e) The spelling lists are also on my web site and I will add the homework menu as well. Please let me know if you have questions. It may take sometime to get routines down. We will work through it together.
