Welcome to Mrs. Ricci’s 3rd Grade Class!
2020-20213R Students are the BEST!** This year is a bit different as we go into the summer months because our new 3rd grader students do not know their teachers. No worries!! Mr. Samples and I work as a team always! So, no matter which teacher you receive, your supply list will be the same and you will have an amazing year!* The supply list for 2020-2021 has been updated and is ready for all of you that love going back to school supply shopping! I know I LOVE getting new supplies!We can not wait to meet all of you!!
**If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will reply within 24 hours during the school week. I try my best to be on top of my emails on the weekend but my response time may be between 24-36 hours. I also have a voice mail account but the fastest way to get in touch with me is still through email. Thank you for your understanding.Students may access our GOOGLE CLASSROOM by clicking the link below:How to Prepare Your Child for 3rd Grade* READ EVERYDAY!! Your child should be reading a "just right" book on their own each night. Also, reading a chapter book to your child that is a bit more challenging can be extremely helpful! It can help build their vocabulary, introduce them to new themes within literature, and it can help build their love for reading!*Practice their BASIC MATH FACTS! Knowing their basic addition and subtraction for both for speed and accuracy will set your child up for success in math. Recalling basic math facts accurately will help your child feel confident from the start of our school year:)*Keep a writing journal of your summer events to keep their ideas flowing!*Practice their typing skills. We use technology a lot in 3rd grade and being able to type well will help your child complete their assignments faster and with fewer errors. The Typing Club is a terrific FREE site that we use often in 3rd grade. https://www.typingclub.com/login.htmlIMPORTANT DATES in SEPTEMBER 20203R Reminders**Sneakers should be worn on Wednesday and Friday for gym class.**Library books should be returned on Monday so they can be checked back in by library class first thing in the morning.**Students may have water bottles on their desks daily to avoid trips to the water fountain.
