Weekend Homework

Yes, that’s right, they have homework!!  I would like them to decorate their composition books.  These books will be FILLED with our precious writings!  Make it special!  Make it fun! Make it about YOU!! Here are a few ideas: cover it with paper, add some pictures, or color it. Personalize it by adding pictures of your favorite animals, sports, activities.  Anything is fine!

The book will be coming home today!  Please return the book by Tuesday (even if it is not done).  Enjoy decorating!!

Welcome to 3rd Grade!!

I am so excited to have you in my class!!  Add this date to your calendar:  Open House on Thursday, August 24.  I can’t wait to meet you!  In the meantime, I would love to hear from you!  You can comment on this post or email me: mvanderw@hpseagles.net.  Tell me about you!  Tell me what your summer plans are!  Tell me what you’re excited about to learn in 3rd grade! Oh… I would love for you to send me a picture!  That helps me put a face with your name.

Here is a supply list.  Sometimes there are some great deals over the summer.  Just click on the link.  


Enjoy your summer!!!  Love, Mrs VanderWall

Time to Say Good-Bye!

It has been an amazing year!  I will miss each and everyone of you.  Remember the challenges and great accomplishments!  You learned so much, did your very best, and never gave up.  Promise me that you’ll keep being fantastic!  I would love to hear from you over the summer (email me!).  Keep reading and practicing those multiplication facts (xtramath and study island are available!!).  Don’t ever forget the times we had together! And…. don’t be a stranger!  I’d love to see you again!
