Welcome, families of third graders!

I am so excited to start the year with your children! This year we have 12 units in our Core Knowledge Language Arts curriculum. Some of the texts are fictional, some are informational, and many of them have strong ties to social studies and science.
The units are: Classic Tales, Rattenborough's Guide to Animals, How Does Your Body Work?. Stories of Ancient Rome, Adventures in Light and Sound, Gods, Giants, and Dwarves, What's in Our Universe? Native American Stories, The Age of
Exploration, Living in Colonial America, and Introduction to Ecology. Our math curriculum is called GOMath and we will be studying addition, subtraction, interpreting data, multiplication, division, fractions, measurement, perimeter and area, and
properties of two-dimensional shapes. Also, we use a curriculum called Second Steps to help kids develop their social skills such as empathy, recognizing social cues, solving problems with peers, and other ways of having positive interactions with each
other.

Please come to Muldoon's Open House on Wednesday, September 6th! Meet me and other teachers, learn about our curriculums, grading policies, behavior policies, class schedules, technology we use at school, and more! Also I will be giving out
information on several ways to contact me- and please don't hesitate to do so. I hope to see you there!
