Welcome to 3rd Grade Superhero Saints!

3rd grade Superhero Saints & Parents,

I am so very excited to be your teacher this year! We are going to have so much fun while learning and getting to know one another! I want you to always feel safe coming to me with absolutely any question or concern. It is my goal to have a safe, fun, Christ-filled classroom full of learning and new adventures! 

I want to know all about you, but first, here are a few things about me: It will be my 1st year teaching, so I will be learning right alongside you! I graduated from the wonderful university of Wichita State in 2017! I have a brother who is in 6th grade and a sister who is in 4th Grade this year. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching movies and going to sporting events. My favorite sports teams are WSU, K-State and Kansas City Chiefs. 


Some things we will be learning this year: 

Reading: You will become more independent readers by reading more complex texts, connecting ideas between texts and focusing on the main topic. 

Math:You will be exploring multiplication, division with equal groups & learning the basics of fractions this year. 

Writing: You will learn increasingly sophisticated language, using phrases and terms to provide examples and make connections within their writing.More time will be spent on planning, revising, and editing texts in 3rd grade

Science: You will be exploring the physical and living world as you make observations, experiment, research, record, and present what you learn. 

Social Studies: You will be learning about communities, including details about citizenship, leaders and governments, and economic systems in different communities.

Religion: We will be focusing on the 4 marks of the church, reviewing the sacraments received last year and studying saints.
