Check out our Writers Notebooks!

On Friday afternoon we decorated our Writers Notebooks.  I think they look fantastic, don't you?  However, there was something even better than the beautiful products:  The way they shared, worked cooperatively, and encouraged and complimented each other was such a pleasure to watch.  You'd have been proud.  (P.S.  They cleaned the room up well and quickly afterwards, too.)

Reptiles on the Move!

Today we had a great visit from Reptiles on the Move.  This wonderful program, which we have due to the generosity of our PTO, is a highlight of third grade.  Marie brings a variety of animals that we rarely have the opportunity to see.  We learn so much, and the enthusiasm and excitement is obvious in the pictures below.  I narrowed the selection down to around 70 pictures.  :-|
