All about Mrs. Gegen
I would love to have open communication with parents so please get with me with any questions or concerns... I do have a facebook group for this class... just search Mrs. Gegen's 3rd grade class to be added.... here I will be posting reminders and things like that.. I will still be sending home letters as well but sometimes those don't make it home.
I love teaching te 3rd grade! I have said I was going to be a 3rd grade teacher since I was in the 3rd grade myself!
I have 2 children of my own, along with 3 dogs and the guinea pig :-)

READING & Spelling
Spelling this year is more of a focus on phonics and vocab... we will be working with phonics skills and do vocab lessons daily. We will not have a weekly spelling test, so there will be no list of set words to take home and study. I am hoping that making this change will be better in long term- instead of just memorizing the spelling words they will be learning more skills to keep with them long term.
Reading tests will be on Thursday's. We do one story a week.
The following website has all of the spelling words and reading skills that we will be working on. There are also many games and activities. (Many great Math exercises!)
