Hello to all my new students and parents. I just wanted to share some information about myself and provide some information on a few things we will be completing during the first part of our school year. My name is John Beck and this will be my third year teaching 3rd grade. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 18 years and we have 3 wonderful boys, ages 11,13 and 16. We love playing sports but baseball is our favorite. I have coached both baseball and basketball for the last 10 years.
A few things my class will be working on in the first part of the year are as follows:
- ELA - we will be working on asking and answering questions, character traits and reading accurately and fluently to improve comprehension.
- Math - we will concentrate on multiplication and division with grouping, repeated addition, skip counting and arrays. We will start with 5s and 2s.
- Science/Social Studies - we will start the year learning about different landforms. We will move on to the different features of saltwater and freshwater.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my students. We are going to be working hard and having fun while learning about so many different and exciting things.
