Welcome new 3rd Graders! I am very excited to begin a new school year through Distance Learning! I am anxious to meet all of you, as well as reunite with some old friends! My supply list is on the MMW homepage link under "Teachers". Supply Lists should be first.
I'm anxious to hear about everyone's summer! Many of us had to cancel plans due to Covid, but I bet you still had wonderful experiences. We have a mountain house, so we spent lots of time up there with our 6 grandchildren! Their names are Emma, Trey, Cole, Rocco, Grace, and Tessa. There are a few pictures of them below!I will share funny stories about them all year!
If you are nervous about virtual or hybrid learning, you are not alone. We are all a bit anxious, but I promise you we will get through it together. Every new experience brings new learning! We have been working hard all summer to come up with new and exciting ways to teach online!
The first day of school will be Tuesday, September 8th. We will spend time learning how to navigate Google Classroom, and some other platforms such as Kami, Nearpod, and more! Eventually, we will settle into a schedule that looks like a regular school day. Here is what our day will look like:
9:00-9:30 Attendance, Morning Meeting
10:35-10:50 Movement break, snack, bathroom
10:50-11:30 Language Arts
11:30-12:00 Special **New rotating specials schedule this year!
12:00-1:00 Lunch/free time/screen break
1:00-1:20 Language Arts (read aloud)
1:20-1:50 Number Corner or WIN time
1:50-2:15 Screen break
2:15-2:45 Social Studies or Science
2:45-3:15 Office hours
I have lots of fun activities planned for the year! The first few weeks we will play a lot of "getting to know each other" games - yes, we can do them virtually! Don't worry, I will email your parents so that you will know how to get online that first day! In the meantime, if anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will see all of you on the first day of school! Your new teacher, Mrs. Maureen Grissell
