We will be responsible and respectful while working hard to We are the creative, brilliant, cool, awesomazing 3rd graders!
At Tyler we constantly strive to give each child the very best possible instruction. We are fortunate to have a staff with a wide variety of academic specialties. At any point during the instructional day your child may have the benefit of working with one of those teachers. That is especially true during Core Extension Time. It is important to keep in mind that working in a group for remediation or enrichment does not necessarily indicate that your child is or will be eligible for other services provided by that teacher. It is also important to keep in mind that we use flexible grouping based on a student’s current needs, so that your child may move in or out of such a group at various times during the year. We will continue to provide your child with the very best instruction. As always, please let us know if you have concerns or questions.
At Tyler Elementary, each third grade student as well as several fourth and fifth graders participated in Hour of Code during the week of December 5. The International event included tens of millions of students in over 180 countries this year, and offered tutorials in 45 languages. It provided a great opportunity for Tyler’s students to learn some basic coding skills using “move blocks” and fun characters already familiar to them. They were fascinated with the activities and were challenged by the problem solving opportunities. Sandra Massey from Instructional Technology helped to set up and plan for the event, and her help is greatly appreciated!
This afternoon, your children will bring home their login information for the Code Studio website. To use this website at home, simply type the following URL into the address bar at the top of your internet browser:
Once you are in the Code Studio website, your child will click on their username and then type in their secret word to access the coding activities.
Enjoy and happy coding! J
Pajama Day for
National Young Reader’s Day Tuesday, 11/15
In order to celebrate National Young Reader’s Day, students can wear pajamas to school on Tuesday, November 15th. We will also have a guest reader come to our classroom for a read aloud!
Please be sure that pajamas and shoes are appropriate for school and the weather that day. Please also have your child bring in a favorite book from home to share and read!
As a reward for raising $10 per lap for the Boosterthon Fun Run, our class will also be having “Pajama Day” this Thursday, November 17th. Children may wear pajamas to school, but please be sure to follow the guidelines below:
If your child does not want to wear their pajamas to school, they can have a “dress up” day or a “comfortable clothes” day instead.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!
I am looking forward to seeing you all on
Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30 in my classroom (Room 203)!
Before attending, please view the
Back-to-School PowerPoint Presentation located in the
Files and Documents tab on the left side of this webpage.
Tyler Elementary will hold Field Day on Friday, October 14th. Rain date will be determined if necessary. Field day will be divided into 2 sessions. Pre-Kindergarten AM, Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade will participate in activities from 9:15am to 11:15am. Pre-Kindergarten PM, 3rd Grade, 4th Grade and 5th Grade will participate from 1:15pm to 3:15pm.
Our class will rotate together from station to station and participate in different games and activities. We are in need of parent volunteers who would like to help run the stations. We will provide you with all the instructions and information on how to run the games.
Your help is greatly appreciated. We are also looking for donations of water bottles. Please sign up where ever you can help out!
I am happy to inform your student has access to hundreds of eBooks using the school's subscription to Raz-Kids, www.raz-kids.com. Students can read, listen to, and even self-record reading these books. Reading-comprehension quizzes along the way show the progress that your student is making. Your student can access assignments on a computer, tablet, or phone, by going to
www.kidsa-z.com/login/egaudiosi and using the information I am sending home today in your child's Take Home Folder.
Raz-Kids books are also available on Android and iOS devices.
Go to www.raz-kids.com/mobile for details.
Follow Your Student's progress: See which books have been read, send messages, and review activity using our Parent Access area. Simply log in as your student, click the "Parents" link in the upper right, register, then follow the log-in instructions emailed to you.
We will be using RAZ-Kids in class periodically. If you are able to send in a pair of earbuds or headphones for your child to keep in his or her cubby it would be very helpful and greatly appreciated! J

What a great first week of school! We learned rules and procedures in our class this week and the children are getting accustomed to our routines in 3rd grade. Please remember to check your child's Behavior to Tweet About Calendar, which is kept in their Data Binder, and their Take Home Folder each day. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
Behavior to Tweet About!
All students will start each day with their clip on the green “Ready to Learn” section of the behavior chart.
As Ms. Gaudiosi notices students behaving respectfully & responsibly, she will move their clip up to the blue “Good Choices” section.
If quality behavior continues, students will be moved to the purple “Outstanding” section of the chart.
If a student is making choices that are disruptive to themselves and/or classmates, they will be moved down to the yellow “Think About It” section of the chart.
Finally, if a student continues to make disruptive choices, they will be moved to the red “Parent Contact” section and Ms. Gaudiosi will email or call the parent to inform them of the disruptive behavior and discuss consequences.
At the end of each day, if your clip is on:
Outstanding you will earn +3 points.
Good Choices you will earn +2 points.
Ready To Learn you will earn +1 point.
“Think About It” you will earn 0 points
“Parent Contact” you will lose -1 point
On Friday, your weekly points will be totaled and you will enjoy that number minutes for
Preferred Activity Time (PAT)! J
