Mr. James Morse

Welcome to my classroom webpage!  My name is Mr. Morse and I teach 3rd grade.  This is my eleventh year teaching, all of which have been here at West Smithfield Elementary.  Go Eagles!  In my classroom you can expect to work hard and learn something new each day! I love helping my students to become stronger readers by building fluency, expression, and furthermore comprehension.  It is important to read each day and find books that you enjoy!  We will also work hard in math by memorizing multiplication problems, exploring fractions, and so much more!  If you would like to know what else we will learn about this year, just browse my webpage!  I am excited to watch each student grow in their knowledge and confidence this school year.  One of my favorite quotes I would love for my students to keep in mind is said by Dr. Seuss, "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."  Here's to a great year of hard work and learning!
