Hello. Let me introduce myself. My name is Ms. Daniels; I am going to be your third grade teacher this year.
Third grade is a fun year, and I have many, many fun activities planned. It is also a challenging year, and you will have to put forth effort. I do assign homework due the following day. Other activities include making models, running experiments, and researching a topic, to name a few. It is okay to be nervous about third grade. Our class is a great class, with a safe environment where it is okay to make mistakes and learn from them.
Most importantly, this year you will be taking a state-wide test called the M.S.P test. Over the course of the year I will be preparing you for this test. We will have a lot of fun in third grade, but we will also work hard and face challenges together.
Be sure to tell your mom and dad that we would love to have them as volunteers for our classroom. There will be many opportunities for parents to help out in class or from home. We will also need chaperones to help with field trips throughout the year.
All my best,
