All about Mrs. Guynes

WELCOME!!!

It is truly an honor to work with you and your child this year. I know
that their third grade math and science journey will be one filled with
excitement and a love for learning.

I received my Bachelors of Science degree, in Elementary Education
from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2003. Along with my degree, I
am also certified to teach Gifted and Talented students, as well as
English Second Language Learners.
I joined Cypress Fairbanks ISD and taught for several years until 2014, when I joined the Tomball family. 
While in Cy-Fair, I had the privilege and opportunity of teaching second
grade, fourth grade and third grade students.

 
When we are not working we love to spend time outside, as a family! My husband loves to fish and my son loves just about anything that involves being outside.

Friday!!

What an amazing 1st "full week" of school. The kids are doing great and really getting into the swing of being back from break. I am very proud of how hard they are working. This week we took our first 2 tests, had our first safety drill and had lots of good learning time.
Next week there are a few important dates to remember..........

  • Parent Information Night has finally arrived! We will all meet in the cafeteria at 6 PM to start the evening where teachers will be introduced.   PTO will then conduct their initial meeting and present their annual budget.  We will have two presentation times, 6:30 and 7:10.  Parents may sign up for the Watch Dog Program, in the computer lab. 

Next week in class.......
We will continue our Place Value unit and begin moving into money. The students will get a study guide next Friday(Math), which will also serve as their homework. This will be due the following Friday(29th)
In Science we will finish States of Matter and move into ways we measure Matter. This will be a fun week with rotation stations set up, to get a hands on experience. 
 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Friday!

Happy Friday!! 
 
It's our first Friday of the year :) The kids had an amazing week, as we got back into the swing of things. We have jumped in with both feet and moved through the beginning of our lessons. The kids are doing great and I am so proud of how hard they worked this week. 
 
I have posted a math review, which will help the students prepare for their first math assessment. The assessment will cover the Place Value skills we have covered so far and will take place on September 15th. 
 
If you look under the Science Resources tab, I have also posted a PowerPoint Lab Safety Rules. This information will help the kiddos prepare for their Lab Safety Test. This test will be next week on Tuesday, September 12
 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get to enjoy this beautiful weather :) 

3.1A Place Value

The students are working on showing numbers in different forms up to the hundred thousand.
 
The different forms are standard, expanded, word, and model forms.  The vocabulary words that we learned are the following: equation, digit, decompose, compose, and value.  
 
Students will be tested on September 15 on these skills.  I attached example test questions for students to use at home as extra practice.

Returning to School

 
Happy Tuesday everyone! 
 
I hope that each of you made it through the hurricane with little to NO damage :) It was wonderful to see all of my kiddos back today! I missed seeing them last week. My family suffered very minor damage to our home and for that I feel incredibly blessed. There are so many that lost everything and my heart breaks for them. It was awesome to see how the communities pulled together, to help those in need. We will spend a little time today, talking about our experiences and allowing the kids a chance to share. 
 
We are now, in a way, starting the school year again. We will spend a little time this morning reviewing the rules and expectations. Many of the kids turned in their technology permission form, today. If you didn't get a chance to sign that, please do so and return tomorrow. Thank you so much 
 
Family information night has been postponed at this point. I will get back to you as to the rescheduled date.   
 
I hope you all have a great week and please contact me if you have any questions.

First Day!

What an AMAZING first day back. It was fast and furious but we learned a lot of classroom/school expectations and got to know a lot about each other. I had a wonderful day and I sure hope the kiddos did too. 
A brochure came home in their Boomerang folder, last night. Hopefully you had a chance to read it and sign the "detach" portion to return to school. If you have any questions about any of the information in the brochure, please feel free to send me a note and let me know. 
The students also brought home their first assignment.......All About Me Gazette Paper. This paper is due back on September 1st. The kiddos should have all of this information in their planner :) 
I am looking forward to another amazing day today! 
We are still on the hunt for a room mom, for our class! If you are interested, please contact me and let me know :) 
Have an wonderful Wednesday 

Meet The Teacher!!

 
I cannot wait to get the 2017-2018 school year started!  I hope to see everyone at Meet the Teacher from 3-4 on Friday (Room 513).  Please be sure to stop in next door to meet your Language Arts teacher, Mrs. Eichler!
 
If you ordered school supply packs last year or over the summer from EPI, they are in my room.  If not, you may bring your supplies on Friday.  All students will need a set of headphones(a built in microphone would be great) for the computers the first week of school (the sooner the better).  Please make sure they are labeled.  
 
If you have not done so already, please click the subscribe button on the right side of the webpage.  This will insure that you are receiving my news updates.  You should also subscribe to Mrs. Eichlers' webpage, as well as the specialists. 
There is information about the web pages, in the brochure you will receive at Meet The Teacher. 
 
I look forward to meeting everyone and seeing all the little smiling faces. :)
