Lucky Us!

We logged onto the www.zooatlanta.org to see the baby Panda today.  We were so lucky to be able to see the Panda moving around in the pen without the mother around. As we continued to watch the mother came in and picked up the baby.  Our class was very excited!

Sharing Time

Our 3rd graders have a new place to share our learning with each other.  We have a twiducate account which allows us to post ideas, suggestions, or questions that we have.  It's a great place for us to learn from each other.  Each of our students has their own password to sign in to our site.  If they remember their password, they can share our conversations with you. Check it out at www.twiducate.com.

Our new favorite baby!

Have you heard about the new baby Panda born at the Atlanta zoo last week?  The mother and baby can be found at the atlanta zoo website.  We have been watching the webcam and reading the zookeeper posts about how the mom and baby are doing.  You can see our new favorite baby at www.zooatlanta.org.  We're excited to watch this panda grow!

Movin' on out!

Our class had to get out of the classroom to learn about area and perimeter.  The 1-foot square tiles on the lunchroom floor made it the perfect place to experiment with area and perimeter.  I hope you enjoy watching our 3rd grade class in action!
