Meet the Teacher I am very excited to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.  My name is Lindsay Ogden, and this is my 8th year at Cajon Park.  I taught for three years at Rio Seco before joining the Fabulous Falcon team.  My teaching experience began in 2002 in Cajon Valley before I moved to Santee.  Beyond teaching, I coached gymnastics, cheerleading, and dancing for about ten years to children between the ages of 2-17.  I also have two little girls named Hayley and Rylee.  Hayley will be 10 years old and is in 5th grade at Cajon Park.  Rylee is 8 years old and will be in 3rd grade this year.  I am looking forward to a great year!  Ogden favorites: •Color: Purple                Hobby:  Teaching Tumbling•Food: Spaghetti            Dessert: Ice Cream•Store: Target              Animal:  Giraffe•Season: Fall                Holiday: Thanksgiving•Drink: Jamba Juice        Place:    Beach•Sport: Soccer/Dance      Subject: Math ACADEMICS Our academic program will align with the newly adopted Common Core standards for third grade.  It is a time of innovation and change in education, and we are ready to take the ride.  As we continue our migration towards the Common Core standards, we will be teaching with more depth and understanding of concepts.  This will be done by integrating new technology, materials, resources, and opportunities for students to explore and increase their knowledge on various subjects.  Reading:  whole-class stories/novels, small group instruction, and independent reading.  Writing: Writers’ Workshop model: three genres include Narrative, Informational, and Opinion writing.  Math: will include building proficiency with the four basic math operations, interpreting data, taking measurements, studying geometry, manipulating fractions, and using all of these skills in real world applications.  You will see math talks and writing integrated more heavily in math instruction due to the structure of our Common Core standards. Social Studies and Science: will be integrated throughout the year in creative units, as well as during our reading time, using these content areas to help us learn how to attack informational text more aggressively.  Physical Education will be structured and activities-based.  Please make sure your child wears (or brings) appropriate shoes for these daily activities. Other: Art, Garden, Library, Computer Lab, etc… HOMEWORK As we continue to move forward in this digital world, we know how important it is for your student to practice their skills taught at school in a way that is accessible to them at home.  Therefore, homework may be part digital this year!  As a third grader, your child will be expected to spend 100 minutes a week reading to support their growth as an independent reader.  I highly encourage you to participate with your child as he/she reads their independent reading book. Read with them – read aloud to them, have them read to you, or even read your own book independently to model for your child how important it is!  By your active involvement with this homework, you will be encouraging your child to fester a positive attitude toward learning and school, and it will help keep you informed about what your child is learning and how well they understand it.  This will not start till September. We will discuss homework further at Back to School Night. BEHAVIOR I firmly believe that student performance is directly tied to teacher expectations.  I expect my students to treat others fairly, produce their best work, complete their assignments on time, come to class prepared, and to conduct themselves in a proper and polite manner.  Responsible choices will be rewarded with praise, positive notes/phone calls, and self-satisfaction that will help build self-esteem and confidence - a key ingredient to student success. The classroom rules are displayed year round to remind the students of the classrooms expectations.  We will be using an online based behavior system called class dojo.  Students will be rewarded throughout the day on class dojo.  Students and parents will have access to behavior reports on a daily basis.  This will be explained further at back to school night. REWARDS:  I will also reward students who go above and beyond expected behavior by periodically passing out tickets to those who make good choices throughout the day for a Friday drawing.   We also have a class marble jar that the class can earn class rewards if they fill the jar. NUTRITION To keep in compliance with California guidelines for child nutrition in school, we are recommending that students bring nonfood items such as party bags with small toys, stickers, pencils, erasers, etc. on special days such as birthdays. Or perhaps donate a favorite book or game to our classroom! VOLUNTEERS                                                                                                       I would love to invite volunteers to support us in and out of the classroom.  Some volunteer duties may include small reading or math groups, art activities, tutoring, preparing materials, helping at class parties, and chaperoning field trips.  I welcome volunteers beginning in September.  More information will be shared at Back-to-School Night. If you plan on volunteering you need to fill out and return the volunteer packet.BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT Please mark your calendar NOW!  Tuesday, August 30th will be Back-to-School Night for 3rd grade parents.  During my presentation, I will cover topics such as weekly folders, homework, behavior system, grade level expectations, grades, important dates, and field trips. I strongly encourage you to attend this important night that will answer any questions you may have, and will inform you of what is to come this school year. ATTENDANCE Regular attendance is essential for your child to experience success in school.  Start each day with a good breakfast and prompt arrival at school.  Your child might want to bring a nutritious snack to hold him/her over during our morning recess break.  If your child must be absent from school for any reason, please contact the school office or myself so that I can put together make-up assignments to be completed in order to help prevent your child from falling behind. FINAL THOUGHTS Let’s communicate!  Please send in notes, set up a conference, or call with any questions or concerns about your child throughout the school year.  My phone is 956-2472 and my e-mail is Lindsay.ogden@santeesd.net.  Also, all homework and announcements will be posted weekly on our classroom website.  I hope to see you at Back-to-School Night! PLEASE… After reviewing this letter, please send me an e-mail that includes your student’s name and any comments or concerns you may have about this upcoming school year.  This will be a paperless way for me to verify you have received my Welcome Letter, and it gives you the opportunity to share any information that you feel is important for me to know.  Thank you!!
