Welcome to Third Grade!
There's no doubt about it! My students are the GREATEST!
WELCOME TO THIRD GRADE with Mrs. Sloma!
I want to welcome my students and parents to third grade at Westmoreland Road Elementary. I look forward to working with your child and you this school year. This year our classroom theme is "The Greatest Showman/Circus" oriented. Much of the classroom is decorated with several items you would see at a circus. The Greatest Showman is one of my favorite movies and has such an incredible lesson to be learned- be yourself and never give up!
This is my fifteenth year doing a themed classroom. In the past I have had a Dinsey themed classroom, a dog themed classroom, a farm themed classroom, an Adirondack themed classroom, a safari themed classroom, and a minion themed classroom.
We do the majority of the classroom assignments together, in schools. However, your child will be assigned to complete work on their REMOTE day that they are home and not in the classroom. Exceptions will be made if your child has been ill for several days. Homework is used to reinforce certain topics that were covered in class that day or the day before.
I am also my students to do the following DAILY:
1. Have your child read out loud to you at least for fifteen minutes each day. Monitor your child's fluency (the speed they read) as well as their ability to retell the story. If a child makes 5 mistakes while reading a page of a book (has difficulty saying a word) or even struggles to retell what has happened, it is a sign that particular book is too high of a level for them.
2. Practice their math addition and subtraction facts up to 20. Also have them practice their multiplication and division facts.
3. Practice their weekly spelling words each day (if spelling words have been assigned for the week or biweekly)
4. Have them go over their weekly reading vocabulary.
If you have any questions throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me at school, Monday through Friday, before school hours 8:00am-8:20am, or after school hours from 3:00pm-3:30pm. My number is 315-266-3440, ext. 0161. You can also contact me through email, at email@example.com.
There's a million reasons why I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year!Westmoreland Road Elementary,Home of the scholars of tomorrow...
