Welcome to Third Grade

Dear Parents and Students,

I was just given my class list, and am super excited about the coming school year! I hope you had a fun-filled and relaxing summer break, and are ready to get back to school.

I've been working on our room for a couple weeks, and it is almost ready. You may have heard that both third grade rooms have said goodbye to the desks, and are using flexible seating. There are high tables with stools, regular chairs and yoga balls.We also have low tables with comfy chairs and/or yoga mats. There's a rocking chair, some floor cushions, a small couch and a papasan chair.

For the first week or two, I will be rotating your seats on a daily basis so you can experience all the different options. After that, you will be able to choose where you would like to sit each week. The goal is to choose a place where you can do your best thinking, reading, writing and math.

I can't wait to see you next Tuesday, and I can't wait for you to see our classroom.
Enjoy these last days of summer with your family, read a book, and bask in the beautiful weather.

Sincerely,
Ms. Fister
