Ms. Alexandra Sánchez
Dear Third Grader,
I am so excited to be your teacher this year! My name is Ms. Sánchez and I have been teaching third grade for five years, but this is my first year at Murphy Elementary. Here are some facts about me: I went to Michigan State University and I love to watch MSU football and basketball. I also love to paint and play pickleball! It sounds weird, but pickleball is a really fun sport. You might see me playing at Hillbrook park sometime!
I can’t wait to meet you soon and get to know you! This year is going to be extra special since we are starting online. We will get to have lots of video meetings to get to know each other. For the first two weeks of school, we will spend most of our time doing getting-to-know-you activities and learning how to use all of our technology for learning at home. But don’t worry, I won’t overwhelm you with too much screen time. You’ll have lots of time for breaks throughout the day!
Make sure you work with your family to find a good spot to do your learning. You will need your school Chromebook, some paper and pencils, a folder, some coloring materials (crayons or colored pencils), scissors, and glue sticks. It will also be helpful if you have a pair of headphones or earbuds so that you can hear and speak clearly during our video lessons. You’ll want to have plenty of water and please talk with your family about some healthy snacks you can eat during the day too, so you can keep your brain focused.
You are going to love third grade. We get to learn multiplication and cursive! We get to study awesome information about our great State of Michigan! We will become super confident readers and writers! We are going to have so much fun together. I can’t wait to meet you soon!
