New Things going on in 3rd grade!

We will be working with a couple new websites starting today.  Today marks the beginning of our multiplication unit and my favorite website for the students to practice on is http://www.multiplication.com/.  

For writing, I am going to have the students try creating a story on http://www.studentpublishing.com/.   Each student has a storybook ID that starts with the code BA0087.  The last 3 digits (2 numbers and a letter) are exclusive to each student and they should have their code written in their planner.  For example, my code would be something like BA008721H.

Have a great day!

Our kids learned how to use a program today called sumdog (www.sumdog.com) to practice math facts.  Your child should have their username and password written in their planner.  You can use this screencast as a tutorial to help you help your child get onto to sumdog at home.  Have fun!
