A Mid-Quarter Letter from Your Teacher
Dear Third Grade Families,
It’s hard to believe we have already been in school together for one month. It feels like yesterday we were just unpacking our bags for the first time, curious and anxious with what all awaits us in a new grade. Now, we apply methods to our scientific thinking, we notice and wonder new curiousities about the communities here and around the world, we read “closely” and not like Henry from “The Incredible Book Eating Boy” – gobbling up books without understanding our intent, and we can strategize to solve real world life problems that include tricks in mutliplication and divsion too! And best of all, we can do all of this with a positive mindset, saying “I can’t...yet!” to all those “I can’t” moments that arrive when faced with new challenges. And just think, we’re just getting warmed up!
