The First Week Wrap-Up
We had a very busy first week of school, jumping write into our curriculum. We did a lot of reading, writing and math, along with some science and social studies. We also found some time to enjoy those beautiful late summer days during recess.
The First Day of School-September 4, 2012
There were many bright and shining faces on our first day of third grade! We got to know each other a bit by collecting autographs on a summer bingo sheet before diving into classroom procedures. We read "The Kingdom with No Rules, No Laws and No King" by Norman Stiles and quickly decided life is better (and safer!) when there are few rules in place. After recess we did a short math assessment and a little bit of writing titled, My First Day of Third Grade. Students received their third grade "survival kits," where every item had a special meaning, and before we knew it, the bell was ringing and our very first day of third grade was over!
