Off to a Fun Start!!

What a fun first few days of school!! We have such an inquisitive, hardworking class! Today, we started our Writer’s Workshop. We began by telling lots of fun stories about special people in our lives. During this unit, we are writing Personal Narratives. Today, we learned that one strategy good authors often do is think of important people in their lives when writing a story.


Hard at work!

Welcome to Third Grade!

Dear Third Grader,

I am so excited for our school year together to begin. My name is Miss Small and this is my first year at Washington Elementary as a teacher. Believe it or not, I attended Washington when I was in school!!! I am so excited to be a "Hornet" again!

For the past 8 years, I taught first grade across town at Harrison Elementary. I love to read, swim, garden, spend time with my family, and take my dog, George, for walks. Above, you will see a picture of me and George. :) He is big and fluffy and LOVES being with people.

You are so lucky, because we will have a second friend and teacher in our classroom. Her name is Mrs. Brumbaugh. She will be working in our classroom during the fall semester. Mrs. Brumbaugh attends Grace College and can't wait to start teaching! I am excited to meet all of you and start our 3rd grade year together. See you soon!


Miss Small
