Making Change

Today we started learning about change in math.  Several of the students didn't understand the concept.  Please work with your child on change from a dollar and five dollars.  A great way to do this is let them pretend to be the cashier and give change back from some amount.  Make it a game.  Thanks for you help.

First Week of Third Grade

The first week of third grade is over.  We have worked hard on procedures in and around the school.  We have learned the 7 continents and 5 oceans.  We worked on place value.  We started Daily 5 with Read to Self and Word Work.  Draft books, math journals, and poetry journals were handed out.  A very busy week for everyone.  Can't wait for the next.
