Welcome to Mrs. Stanley's Third Grade Classroom!

Happy November! See the source image

Good afternoon parents/guardians! 


We made it through another week of virtual learning! Yay for us!  

I will hold math tutoring on Wednesdays at 1:30. If your child can attend during this time, I encourage them to do so! They will come back to our team page and wait until I start the meeting and they will click "join" to hop into the meeting. 

Our third writing club meeting falls on Thanksgiving Day, so we will hold it the following Thursday on December 3rd.  I will continue to remind the students about this. There is a folder located under Files on our Stanley Third grade team titled "Writing Club Homework and information." This folder includes what we learn in writing club and their homework assignments for the writing club.  If your child is absent from the writing club, they can find the information they missed there. 

 I have added a folder located under "Files" in our Stanley Third Grade team. This folder is titled "Social Studies" this will contain our Social Studies notes we take in class. If your child is absent or did not finish taking down the notes, they can go to this file to see our notes. I will continue to add on the notes to the graphic organizer as we take them in class. 


This is a friendly reminder to please encourage your child to use the bathroom before our class meeting time each morning. This prevents them from being away from their seat during any instructions that are being given.  


It is imperative that your child attend class when they are able. Since our virtual school day is condensed to only four hours, my teaching is bit more fast paced than when we were in the school building. If your child misses a school day, they are potentially missing new content that is being taught and could possibly hinder them from understanding and getting caught up as quickly as they would when we were face to face. I know we all want our children to succeed in school and to help with that, please try to make sure they are online and engaged when they can be! I appreciate all your help on this!  


The students are doing a wonderful job of working diligently to complete their independent practice assignments. However, there are a few students who do have a good bit of assignments that are not getting turned in. This is a reminder that per River Mill grading policy any work that is turned in late is 10 points off per day, after three days it will become a 0. Please remind your child that any work not finished during the school day becomes their homework. I also remind them of this during our class time as well.  




Math Masters with Mrs. Bradshaw will now only be held on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. I urge you to encourage your child to participate in the Math Masters Multiplication Challenge! For every multiplication fact number they master their name will be posted in the River Mill Office under that number. My hope is our entire class will make it to that board eventually! For more information regarding the Math Masters Multiplication Challenge you can refer to the paper that was sent home with the student materials that were picked up from the school.  



Thank you for all for your support and help at home with making sure your child is attending school each day and working hard. However, there are quite a few students who are missing assignments. Please make sure your child is completing their assignments each day and turning them in (even if they must finish them after class time, 12:00.) Your child's incomplete assignments are in their assignments tab in our class team. Thank you! 

If you have any questions, please let me know! 



School Supplies
The 3rd grade team has put together a suggested digital school supply list.  These items will help your student be successful during digit learning:
Don't forget that textbook/material pick up is Monday and Tuesday (8/10-8/11) from 8am - 10am and 12pm - 2pm.  You will go through the car rider line to pick up these materials.  Along with their Eureka math workbooks, we have placed a sheet of white paper in a sleeve protector.  This can be used as a whiteboard. There will also be something fun in there as well :)
