Dear Terrific Third Grader, 

Welcome to a new school year! I know that this will be a very successful and fun year.  We have so many fascinating new things to learn! There will be many great books to read, subjects to explore, and new skills to master!  

I am Mrs. Nyce.  I hope you had a very fun, exciting, and adventurous summer just like me.  I was able to spend some time at the beach this summer with my family! I can’t wait to hear about what you did this summer!

As you prepare for third grade, please consider bringing these supplies to class.

  • 4 large glue sticks

  • pencils and erasers (for personal use)

  • a box of pencils to share with the class

  • one set of crayons or colored pencils

  • a supply bag or pouch

  • 6 dry erase markers and one dry marker eraser (you can always use an old sock)

  • One 5-subject notebook to use as your writer’s notebook 

  • 2 thin tip colored pens or markers-for self-correcting

  • 1 yellow highlighter

  • 1 pack of post-it notes any color or size

  • 1 homework folder Choose something sturdy and colorful!  

  • 3 boxes of tissues

Band-Aids, Ziplock baggies (gallon or quart), or sanitizing wipes are appreciated as classroom donations

I can’t wait to learn all about each of you! As we build our learning community, we will spend time during the first week sharing about ourselves.  I will share about myself too. Please complete the “BROWN BAG IT” activity sheet and bring it to school on the first day.  

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  I am looking forward to meeting you!  We are going to have a fantastic year in third grade!
