This week in reading we chose the book club we would like to be in! We started meeting with book club partners. Everyone was VERY excited about this! Ask your child what book he/she is reading in book club.
We also started using Istation. This is a reading practice program on the computer. Your child can do this at home too! Directions and passwords will be sent home next week.
Welcome To Third Grade!! We are going to have an amazing year! If you are new...here's some information about me!
I'm excited to be teaching at Velasquez! I have been teaching for 15 years. I taught first grade for 10 years, and second grade for 5 years. I'm excited to move up to third grade this year! I also love to teach reading and writing.
I am married and I have two kids. My daughter Alayna, is almost 11 and my son Brayden is 8.

I'm excited to start a great school year. I know we are going to learn SO much and have a great time. I will use this blog A LOT throughout the school year to share information and fun stuff we are doing in class, so check back often!
I really enjoyed every single day in this classroom with all of you! You are all smart, kind, thoughtful, and just plain amazing! I've learned so much from you. I'm going to miss seeing your smiling faces every day. I hope you have a fun and safe summer. I can't wait to see you in the fall in THIRD GRADE! Yay! I'm so proud of all of you!!
Love You All!
Here's a short video of some of the fun things we've done this year!!
On Wednesday, we had the end of the year AR celebration. Students that met their AR goals every nine weeks attended the celebration. Ms. Baldwin had the snake guy come and share information about snakes and he also let us hold all the snakes! It was so fun!
