Welcome to 3rd grade!


This is my 9th year teaching in the Belleville School District. I taught four years of 1st grade before moving to 3rd grade. This year, I will be responsible for teaching Math to all three 3rd grades and Social Studies for my homeroom. 


Please check this page and our Google Classroom for important updates and happenings within our classroom. An open line of communication between parents and teachers is a vital component for student success. Please feel free to email me (jaclyn.corino@bellevilleschools.org), send a note in your child's folder, or call the school if you have any questions or concerns. 



A little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Belleville and am a proud graduate of the Belleville High School Class of 2008. I graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey in 2012 with a B.A. in Psychology and an Elementary Teaching Certificate. I am currently enrolled in Montclair State University's Graduate School pursuing a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. 





Google Classroom will now be used for classwork, study help, centers & more!! Students also now have the math/social studies, science, and language arts website linked to their google accounts. They will be logged into these websites automatically if they go in through anything in "G Suite." (a packet of reminders and "how to's" will be going home ASAP to help with this at home)

Due to the high interest of the students - beginning this month (October) and continuing for the rest of the year, students may chose whomever they want to complete their "Spotlight Scientist" report. 
Here is a list of the famous scientists and inventors from the Sciencesaurus that is part of the Science program (students are not limited to the list): 
1. Mary Anning
2. Benjamin Bannaker
3. George Washington Carver
4. Leonardo da Vinci

*A hard copy of this will be sent home today. The hard copy includes a check list to check off of who has been researched each month to eliminate repeats. 

Picture Day is this Friday, October 5th. Don't forget to send the envelope in with your child if you are purchasing pictures! 
Topic 1 Quiz will be on Wednesday (9/26) and will cover multiplication as repeated addition, multiplying using a number line, arrays, and division (1 division problem that can be solved by drawing a picture or using repeated subtraction). Review the front pages of the homework  in order to prepare for the quiz. 

There has been a change to the HMH Dimensions Science online accounts. New usernames and passwords with be distributed as soon as possible. 

Tomorrow's skip counting quiz will be on skip counting by 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, and 10s. Don't forget to study!!


September's "Spotlight Scientist" is Mary Anning. Every child now has the project paper with them and should have brought it home to complete. They were all given some class time to work on it and some have already finished.

** A new page has been added to our site! It includes the "spotlight scientist" directions, rubric, and paper. It also includes the due date for every month.

Number Posters

If you can skip count, you can multiply!!! Practice skip counting to help build multiplication fact fluency. Paper copies of these posters will be going home, but you can also print or view them using the attached document.
Starting this Friday, students will be quizzed on skip counting. In addition to practicing with these posters, we will be listening to skip counting songs each day (see next follow up post for links to those songs). 
Attention families - Log in information has been sent home! Please look for a yellow (3C) or blue (3B) index card attached to each student's planner. Let me know if any of the information does not work. 
Our class is now using the "Remind" App. Check in your child's folder for the flyer that explains how to join our class to receive important updates and reminders.
