Welcome to the 3I Class Blog!Posted by Sara Ibis on 7/1/2021
Welcome to 3rd grade!
Hi, I'm Ms. Ibis! I am so excited to have you in my class this year and I'm looking forward to our year together!
I'm excited to get to know you! If you want to know a little bit about me before we meet, click here to read my Meet the Teacher.
Class blog and Communication
This is the first post of the 2021-2022 class blog. Families, please bookmark this page as I use this webpage as my primary source of communication. Please also be on the lookout for messages delivered to your email via Blackboard Connect - they often end up in Spam.
School Supply List
You can click here to find out what supplies you will need this year.
We use soft seat sacks on the backs of our chairs to store our belongings. Please only buy and bring what is on the list. I recommend shopping small, like buying an 8-pack of markers instead of a 64-pack :) I strongly recommend a small soft pencil pounch that will fit inside your seat sack or neatly on your table. Gallon size Ziploc bags work really well too! Please bring all of your supplies on the first day of school and we'll spend a little time sorting them out so you feel prepared. Have fun shopping!
Bus Route Information
You can click here to find out more information about the bus route.
If your parent(s) or guardian(s) would like to volunteer in the classroom or go on a Traveling Classroom trip, they must fill out a parent volunteer form prior to the event. You can click here to find the volunteer form.
Information about 3rd Grade
We have occassional homework in 3rd grade, and you should plan on reading at least 30 minutes every day, even the weekend!
Google Apps, including Google Classroom, Slides, and Docs, will be integrated into our classroom this year. Every 3rd grader has a MCPS email address that allows him/her to access Google Apps except Gmail. Google Classroom and Google Suite will be used during school and can be accessed outside of school from any location with internet. You will be able to watch educational videos about the subjects we are covering, turn in assignments, and ask me for help. In addition, you will learn how to respectfully and responsibly communicate in a safe online environment. Everything in Google Apps will be closely monitored by myself, the other 3rd grade teachers, and Mrs. Nygren.
Birthdays will be celebrated with a game or another fun activity of your choosing, and you can bring a read aloud book from home or choose one from our class library. Please, no treats. Students with summer birthdays (June 13-August 29) will celebrate their half birthday.
In keeping with the MCPS technology policy, cell phones and smart watches may only be used before and after school off of school grounds. Phones must be turned off or on airplane mode and in their backpacks during the school day. Smart watches, similarly, should be kept in airplane mode during the school day. Families, please do not send text messages to your children during the school day. It is distracting and will result in their device being taken away. If you have an urgent message for your child, please call the front office or send me an email and the message will be delivered.
