Welcome to Third Grade!
I'm Mr. Abbott and I'm looking forward to meeting you very soon. I hope you're enjoying your summer as much as I am. Mrs. Abbott and I are hard at work getting our classroom in shape for all the fun and learning we will be doing this year, it looks great with a new coat of paint!
How has your summer been? I've spent the summer getting re-acquainted with many of the things that make living in Maine so great: beaches, hiking, biking, music, and finding a comfy place to curl up with a book. I hope you've had and are still having a great summer, too, doing the things that make you happy. Keep those memories fresh, we'll be tapping into some of them for our first writing work this fall!
If you want to get an idea of what to expect this year, you can go back through last year's blog posts and also the "Final Five" tab at the top of the blog. We will be doing many of those things, as well as some completely new activities. There's also a summary of homework, our specials, and some other interesting bits and pieces. Feel free to explore and maybe get excited about what's coming up!
If you look on the right side of the blog, there's a place to enter an email address. Get your parents and anyone else who wants to keep track of us this year to sign up there, and they'll get a notification whenever we post something new. It's the best way to keep abreast of what's going on in our classroom!
Keep your eyes on the mail, there should be something arriving for you very soon. If you have any questions, call me here at school or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do.
See you soon!
