Friends and Families,
Well, we did it! We completed a journey started was back in September of 2015, when a group of brand-new third graders entered room 103 at Yarmouth Elementary School. This June, all twenty-four of us are moving on to fourth grade. Well done! We've had quite a few adventures along the way. Some of them are your standard third grade endeavors like multiplication, biographies, persuasive essays, and geology. Others were more quixotic and unique, such as launching rockets, Genius Hour, rock climbing at YHS, and lego robotics. Throughout it all, we were never afraid to try new things, fail spectacularly, and learn from each other.
Thank you to all the families who supported us this year: moms, dads, brothers and sisters, grandparents and friends. Thank you to all the people who found time to volunteer and join us in class or support us outside of it. Thank you for all your words of support and your kind gifts to me throughout the year, hearing from you can turn a good day into a great one.
Good luck next year! Fourth grade holds many new and exciting experiences. After a brief hiatus to welcome the twins in September and October, I will be right back in room 103, please come by and share some of your new discoveries with me.
I've created a shared folder, called Abbott Videos 2015-2016 that pulls together most (all?) of our classroom videos from this year. There are a couple of extras in there (Bike Train, Bike Swap, Board Games) as well. Feel free to take a trip down memory lane!
And of course, the year wouldn't be complete without one last romp through here.
Stay in touch,
