Ms. Courtney WallerNelson Elementary School
Welcome to Third Grade!I am looking forward to teaching your child and anticipate a successful year. Expectations are high for the students this year, and their responsibilities will increase. Students must be organized, complete a more difficult and extensive curriculum and workload, use time management skills to get assignments done and work to solve problems on their own. At the same time, they will also participate in creative learning activities and demonstrate what they know in imaginative ways.
I am eager to begin working with you toward the goal of providing the best educational experience for your child. At home, one good way to review the day’s lessons is to ask your child to tell you about what he or she did in class. Please encourage your child to read, read, read, and then tell you about what they read. Reading any written material will help students with fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. I recommend 30 minutes of reading a day to students. In addition, reinforcing organization and time management skills goes a long way toward achieving the best educational experience possible.
I believe communication between a teacher and parents/guardians is so important. I love to communicate with parents and guardians via the Seesaw App. To learn more about how I value communication in my classroom and other forms of communication, please visit the page on my site: Communication.
Again, I welcome you to another school year, and I look forward to working with you and your child to make it a fantastic one!Sincerely,Your partner in education
