Welcome to third grade! My name is Mr. Saffer, your teacher for this exciting journey. I have been a teacher at B.F. Gibbs for a long time and may have even had some of you in my class before. If so, welcome back! If not, I look forward to meeting you. Together we will explore amazing topics like multiplication, division, fractions, and area. In reading, we will expand our vocabulary, helping us read larger, more complex texts. The work we put into reading will even make us better writers! I cannot wait to hear about the books you read over the summer and the adventures you want to share. I look forward to a GREAT year together.
