Welcome to Mrs. Matarese's Class

     Welcome to Mrs. Matarese's third grade classroom at Washington Oak School!  Third grade is an exciting year for learning and social growth.  In grade three, students are engaged in guided reading, writers' workshops, a variety of hands-on learning activities in the areas of problem solving, science, math, and social studies, as well as daily language practice.     

          Instruction is tailored to meet the diverse needs and learning styles of all children.  In our classroom, children are encouraged to take risks and talk about their learning.  While my expectations of the students are high, the stress level in the classroom is low; this combination is essential for students' success. 

          Please visit our web page to learn more about our classroom and explore learning links.  You will find information about our school and community, as well as our daily routine.  Visit often and enjoy!
