With that in mind we will take advantage of the wonderful spring weather while we can to head out doors for reading and writing. On April 26th we are heading out to the Zoo and I would love 1 parent to come with us. If you are able to come with us please let me know.

Students should read fiction 20 minutes every school night and write a response to what they have read. Responses may be about the traits of the characters in their stories and evidence of where in the book they show these traits. Or they may summarize the big/main idea of the part they have read. They should then record it in their reading log.

Dear Families,
I am so excited to be teaching your child this year. Grade 3 is such a special year with many pivotal advances in learning and social development as the students transition from their early primary years to upper elementary; it is an honor to be able to help them learn and grow.

My name is Patti-Jo Boettcher, which is pronounced without the o- Betcher. I have been teaching for 20 years and 18 of these years overseas. I am an elementary specialist with classroom experience from grade 2 through grade 5. I have worked in Canada, Thailand, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia and Saudi Arabia. Busan has delighted me at every turn. I have my Master of Science in International Learning Styles and love learning myself so have completed many online courses and attend conferences to stay up to date with the best teaching practices from around the world.

I expect that parents can and should visit the classroom and will do my best to provide you with opportunities to come in and see what we are learning and celebrate our successes with us.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or want to volunteer in the classroom, please let me know.

Miss Patti-Jo Boettcher
