Connect all whites together.
Connect the black to the light to the top of the switch.
Connect the other two blacks togetheralong with a pigtail and connect this to the bottom of the switch.
Also connect all grounds and take one to the switch.

I could not agree more. :thumbsup:

(But please always be careful when tinkering with electrical wires.)
