3-Digit Subtraction Using Models

We have been learning 3-digit subtraction with regrouping strategies.  Our math series does a great job in making sure the students understand concepts and not just shortcuts or rules.  I truly believe that by using the place value blocks, students have a concrete understanding of what it means to regroup.

Publishing Party

Today we had a Publishing Party to celebrate the publishing of our personal narrative writing.  Students enjoyed popcorn while they read each other's stories. Students wrote tips, questions, and compliments for one another.  Our next writing piece will be an Informational piece.  Stay tuned...

Food Chain


Today we worked on a website called VoiceThread to create a food chain slide show.  This is Phillip's VoiceThread.  Enjoy!

Timberwolf TREK Walk-a-thon

Look at these third graders!  They were ready to WALK at recess for the Timberwolf Trek!  I love the hats and crazy socks!  A packet is coming home tonight for them to collect their pledges.  I hope everyone will try to participate in some small way.

Outstanding Behavior

Way to go, Thelma!  She is our first student to fill out her punch card with 20 punches. This means she got on Outstanding 20 times this year on the clip chart. Way to follow those Timberwolf PACK expectations.
