Welcome to Room 302, 3rd Grade

Dear Firebird Families,

Welcome to Room 302! 

My Name is Kate Gould, I've been teaching here at Folwell since 2014 and third grade has been home to me. I've recently completed my Master of Arts in Teaching with a focus in teaching multiplication. Math is my favorite, but I promise we spend a lot of time and energy in Literacy, Science and Social Studies as well. We also practice mindfulness and learn how to be a community of learners through enrichment activities and sharing our work. 

Parents and Guardians please note that a "Home Folder" will be sent home on Tuesdays. The folder will have communication from myself and the office as well as work that we are all doing together. These folders need to be checked, signed and returned to school by the following Thursday.

Homework will be sent home every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Your student should be bringing home a notebook with a math word problem glued in. The expectation is that they try it out and they show their work so that they can explain their thinking.

Reading is also a very important part of homework- either alone or with you- your child should read 30 minutes everyday! 


If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom please let me know what days and times you are available. 


Thank you for your continuing support.


Ms. Gould
