Alison (comment #52),
I'm sure you will love 3rd grade! I have been teaching it for years now, and I feel like I never want to change grades!
For ideas about starting the school year, you can check out my September Top Ten List that I created at the beginning of the school year. I shared many ideas about the way I start my school year with my own students. Here is a link to that blog post: http://blogs.scholastic.com/top_teaching/2010/09/september-top-10.html
I hope this helps!
