Welcome Mrs. Bloss' Third grade Classroom!

Embrace God's Universe


autumn

Embracing God’s Universe means to be aware of the splendor of new seasons. We have moved on from our Science study of Life Cycles and are learning about the many ways to chart and map the majesty of God’s Earth. Our Journeys stories will also encourage cross curricular lessons in science, social studies and ILA. We are excited to experiment with some simple engineering concepts as we build bridges. Our Math lessons will continue to explore number sense as we estimate and graph. Religion has caused us to reflect on the gift of Christ’s life and remember the message of Mark’s Gospel: “Love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength….”

Please consider joining us in the 5K, even if just for the family friendly walk!

Theater week is almost here. Remember 3rd graders who sign up are only practicing on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Thank you for your continued support of purchasing Grocery Gift Cards. It supports the use of technology throughout our school!

I believe all children can achieve!  The teacher’s role is to find and develop the best environment for the student’s achievement. The best classrooms have an eclectic approach that responds to the individual and the group.  The teacher is to inspire a love of learning and be a catalyst to discovering independent, life-long learning.  The teacher has a responsibility to help instill values and virtues of respect, perseverance, and kindness.  The classroom teacher has a partnership with the family and whole school community to promote the healthy development of the student’s mind, spirit, body and intellect.  I am honored to be called teacher.  – Ann Bloss
