Welcome to Third Grade!
Welcome to third grade at Dr. N.H. Jones! My name is Mr. Bishop, and I am honored to be your third grade teacher. Third grade is going to be an exciting time for all of us. We plan to do many exciting things that will challenge your child academically. Third grade is a huge transition year for our students and we will work hard to prepare them.
This year, most of our reading standards will be taught through Social Studies, Science, and fiction passages. Each topic of study will focus on the Florida Standards. Our goal is for students to understand the importance of developing essential reading skills and how it will benefit them in the future. We will apply instructional practices based on critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. This will allow students the opportunity to make authentic real world connections, and create an environment needed for our students' development as the thinkers our future needs.
I am very excited to have you this year! I want to welcome you, and I look forward to working with you this school year.
