Each of us is currently working on publishing our first writing piece in third grade. Ask us what we chose to write about for our personal narrative!

Yesterday afternoon we had our very first mystery reader! Eleanor's dad came and read The Math Curse by Jon Scieszka. It was a great story! We loved solving some of the funny math problems with him while he read. We are already looking forward to our next mystery reader!
Making change is a difficult concept. In math we practiced making change by counting up. Below is a great online game to help us practice at home!

The first component of a Genius Hour project is research. Today we began researching our passion and recording our findings. Ask us what we learned today and what project we plan to begin next class!
