Hello! Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Janette Martinez.
This is my first year teaching third grade, but I have taught upper elementary for the last 10 years. I graduated from Kansas State University with a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction, with emphasis in Reading/Language Arts.
My husband and I have two amazing boys, Eli (9) and Aiden (4). Scottie and Diesel are our two dogs. In my free time, I enjoy reading; taking long, quiet walks; and going to the park.
Our schedule is as follows:
7:15 Students are allowed into the building
7:30 Students enter the classroom
7:40 Tardy bell rings
7:40-9:00- Morning Stations
9:00-9:55 Essentials.Plan Time (Music, Media/Guidance, PE, Art, Tech)
9:55-10:15 Restroom Break/Snack/Homeroom Tasks
1:45-2:20 Science/Social Studies
Although we don't have assigned homework, we highly encourage the continuous study of spelling, multiplication facts, and reading daily.
Million Minute Reading Challenge
As a building we have a reading challenge of 1 million minutes. Students record their reading minutes on a reading log that is sent home each month. Throughout the month, students keep track of their reading minutes and return it to me at the end of the month. Students are then rewarded according to their numbers read.
Scholastic Book Orders
I also participate in Scholastic Book Clubs, so each month your child will be bringing home book order flyers. Students can pay through check (Written to Scholastic), cash, or online through the Scholastic website (See Links). The classroom code is: HYF2L. If ordering online, you can order from any flyer from any grade. Books take one week to arrive.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me directly through email or call our school number:
