*My name is Jennifer Slone. Welcome to my third grade class. This is my second year in third grade, but I have been teaching for 23 years. I want my students to love learning new things!
*We are working on "Soil and Water" in our science curriculum. We have lots of mad scientists in third grade who like to experiment! Be on the look out for strange happenings near our room.
*We are becoming experts at reading maps in Social Studies. Just ask us how to get somewhere! We are working on physical maps at this time.
*Currently we are studying habit #6 in our "Leader in Me" lessons. Habit 6 is "Synergize" This is about how working together is better . We continue to work on being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and putting first things first and win-win. We are becoming awesome third grade leaders! We are working on having a growth mindset. It's OK if we don't know how to do something and it's OK if we fail. We just need to keep trying to reach our goals. Don't ever give up! There are lots of famous people who failed at first. We just persevere and keep going! We will be serious, diligent, focused, disciplined, and resilient in 2019.
*Read, Read. Read! We do this a lot. Practice choosing good fit books and being comfortable as you read.
