Welcome 

Welcome to 3rd Grade!

Hello, my name is Mrs. Ives, and this is my fifth year teaching third grade at Bonnie Brennan Elementary School. Here is a little about me. I grew up in Minnesota, and I have been living in Flagstaff since 2010. I like to hike, play soccer, read, ride my bike, camp, sew, and bake in my spare time.

Here is a glimpse into the school year ahead in third grade. We will read all kinds of stories together including poems and folktales. We will write in journals and practice cursive. Our class will play lots of math games and practice doing math in our brains – no hands! We will learn to multiply and divide, compare fractions, and find the area and perimeter of a shape. In science, we will learn about the life cycle of a plant, food chains, and how animals adapt (including you) to their environment. We will also learn about U.S. history, world history, government, and geography.

I love to teach and learn, and I enjoy getting to know my students. You'll find links to ebooks, a plethora of math games, and other helpful resources on this site. Feel free to explore and have fun learning!!!
