3rd Grade


Welcome to Mrs. Van Etten's Classroom

Welcome to Third Grade!
Each new school year is such an exciting step in life's journey!  I am so happy to be given the opportunity to get to teach and learn from your children.
Here are some 3rd grade expectations:
1. We will use the planner to record homework, both daily assignments and long term projects.  Please check and initial planners daily.  I will also use the planner for any quick notes or minor communication.
2. Expect homework daily.  I use the Math Simple Solutions as daily homework and we will check together in class.  If your child does not understand a problem, I will answer questions in class.  Sometimes the book is on a new concept that we have not yet covered, but will later.  Most weeks we will have Spelling.  There will be some time to work on pages in class, but some will have to finish at home.  The students will write their word lists in the planner to study daily.  I use the Simple Solutions English as morning work in class, but sometimes will have some English and Grammar packets for weekly homework.  By having the Math due daily, and the Spelling pages due weekly I am trying to help the students learn to budget their time and be aware of differing due dates.
I am always at school early, and rarely leave before 4:00 p.m.  Please contact me with any questions that may come up, either in person, through e-mail, or a phone call.
Thank you for all you do and I feel blessed to work with your children this year.
Mrs. Van Etten
