Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We are going to be exploring many different topics this year! We will be doing many hands on projects. Third grade is a wonderful year. We begin to foster independence and responsibility. We build our self-respect and respect for others. Third grade is a year of growth, learning and laughter.
Ms. DeSarbo believes that all children can learn, but all children learn differently. She promotes the understanding and teaching of differentiated instruction and the Universal Design for Learning. Promoting three key elements in the classroom leads to an environment that fosters learning for all; Autonomy, Competence, and Belonging. When children feel that they have choice, the ability to learn, and a purpose in the classroom, they will succeed to their optimal potential.
