Concerning school supplies, there are just a few key items that 3S students need. We are using a subject-specific organization system, so we use certain colors of composition notebooks and folders. Please buy one composition notebook of each color- red, blue, green, and yellow, and one two-pocket folder of each of those colors. If you can't find one of those colors, then just get black. Also please bring in a sturdy folder that will act as your Homework folder. Please put all loose supplies such as pencils, scissors, a glue stick, a red pen, a small box of crayons or colored pencils, a skinny Expo marker, a highlighter, and a black Sharpie marker into one single zip-lock bag OR one small supply box which should easily fit inside our small desks. Anything extra should be kept at home and brought in as needed it to replenish your supplies, along with lined notebook paper for homework. Please eat a nourishing breakfast and pack a mid-morning snack every day! We eat lunch every day at 1:10. The Art teacher will want you to bring in an old large T- shirt for a smock, the Computer teacher a pair of earbuds in a labeled, zip-lock baggie, and the Music teacher a one-inch, three-ring binder. You'll need to wear sneakers on P.E. days. And please remember to pack your POSITIVE ATTITUDE everyday! 3S is a positive thinking area!
Third graders are given an agenda book to write down homework and important information every day! Their parent or guardian will check it every night to be up to date on all current information. It is our primary written source of communication. Please know that anything written in the agenda that's in red ink, indicates late homework. If parents have a quick note to tell me, please write it in the agenda book. Of course you are always welcome to write a separate note, email me : email@example.com, or call the school 973-584-5549 and I can call you back during school hours. Anything that has to do with early pickups or dismissal changes has to go to the main office; health issues go to the nurse. Clear communication is important to me, so I will do everything I can to keep that strong for us.
FInally, we've learned about some websites which are helpful for practice at home, such as Raz-kids for Reading, and IXL for both ELA and Math. For Math facts practice, I recommend:
