First Week of School 2018

We had a busy first week of school! Read on to find out what we did this week!

It was a fantastic first day of school!

During the first week of school we started Daily 5. (To learn more about what Daily 5 is, visit the ELA page of the HES Third Grade Website.)

Students practiced Read to Self.

They learned how to pick out “Good Fit Books.”

Students also decorated their writing journals and practiced Work on Writing.

In math, students reviewed place value by using base-ten manipulatives and playing fun games. They also learned about rounding numbers on a number line when we drew a number line with chalk on the sidewalk. (To learn more about math in third grade, visit the math page of the HES Third Grade Website.)

Even inside recess on rainy days can be fun when you get to hang out with your friends!


A New Year

I’m so excited about the new school year! It takes a lot of work to take the classroom

from this…

…to this,

but it is worth it! It will be such a wonderful learning environment for my class. I can’t wait to meet my new students at Open House in the morning! I know we’re going to have a great year!
