Dear Students and Families:
Welcome to my third grade class in Room 20!! I am very excited to get to know each and every one of you! I hope you all had a safe and healthy summer, and maybe even managed to have some fun!
Some of you may know me as, Mrs. Rosefield, the 5th grade teacher, but this year I get to teach 3rd Grade, and I have been told that 3rd Graders are the BEST!! Something you may not know about me is that I am also a dancer and choreographer. I hope you will dance with me this year. Another role I play is, "mom" for my two amazing daughters. Delaney is 19. She graduated from Bella Vista High School, is now attending Sierra Community College, and works at a Veterinarian Hospital. Natalie is 18. She also graduated from Bella Vista and is in her first year at CSU, Chico! I'm so very proud of both of my girls. You will hear me talk about them a lot, so I'm sure you'll get to know them too.
As third graders, you have "graduated" to the intermediate grades! This means that you will get to do new and interesting activities at school and will be expected to exercise a little more self-control and common sense as you grow into this new stage. Talk to your family about these concepts. I’m sure you will agree that all students have the right to learn in an environment where manners matter and learning comes first. If we all practice our best self-control and common sense, it gives us more time to have fun with learning!
Together we will create a classroom where everyone has the chance to learn, grow, explore, work hard, make mistakes, and enjoy our time together. Please be sure to have a quiet working area at home, away from distractions such as the TV, other electronics, siblings, animals, etc., where you can work on your daily reading and homework. Don't worry, you won't have too much homework, but what you have will be important. I understand that this may be challenging, but it will be VERY important for you to have some independent practice time with reading and new concepts when you're not here in Room 20 with your classmates and me.
I know that some of you might have "butterflies" in your stomachs when you think about the first day of school. I always have trouble sleeping the night before the first day of school, too! Try not to worry and know that I'm planning a really fun first day of school for us, and I can't wait to meet you!!
