Message to Students and Parents

Hello! I'm glad you are checking out 3rd Grade at TAAS. I’m the 3rd grade teacher. I'd like tell you a bit about our class. We are a nature-centered class. We bring the outdoors indoors to observe and study. At various times, we have interesting creatures visiting our classroom, such as: parrots, squirrels, beetles, walking sticks, plants, frogs, praying mantis, and the list goes on. Sometimes we go on fun nature walks on trails around TAAS.


We also like to cook great tasting foods, so when we do well on our tests, we get to make things like: bread, doughnuts, onion rings, pies, ice cream, etc. in our classroom kitchen! This encourages us to try pretty hard in our school work. We also like to sing. We start the day with fun songs and learn how to sing both as a group and even as a soloist. Then, we share this talent in various school programs.


We also learn that Jesus loves us very much. We try to share His love in our classroom and with others. Sometimes we visit old people in nursing homes to share Jesus’ love and our love, too. They really appreciate that! Of course, we do all the regular things, like: Spelling, Chinese, Math, Language Arts, P.E., Handwriting, Science, Social Studies, Reading, Bible, and Technology. Third Grade work is hard, and we have to study each night to complete our assignments. But, it is worth it. We have big dreams for our future!

What are we up to?
