It's All About Me!

3rd Grade #1 Welcome Figurski KIDDLES

This part of my blog is reposted from a blog I wrote with my 3rd grade students during my last year of teaching 2010 – 2011. I wrote about the fun lessons that I designed and taught. The children were engaged and excited as they completed various assignments because they knew I would post their work on our WIKI page. They loved to share their work with their families on their computers at night. Many times they even had assignments based on our work on the WIKI.

For privacy they have changed their names. They are using pseudonyms. A pseudonym is a pretend name that will hide their real identity. So as you journey through our site, look for wild animal, precious stone, and flower names. That would be my 3rd graders.

I will continue to add posts. Teachers, feel free to adopt any lesson you feel would be fun for your students.

                               Welcome Figurski KIDDLES

Third grade is a new and exciting challenge. This year you will continue your education by enhancing the skills you have learned in Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade. You have already learned to read. This year you will read to learn.

You will use your reading skills to understand Science and Social Studies. Reading will also help you to understand Math, English, and Spelling. Of course, you will want to read for pure enjoyment, too. Curl up with a good book and let it take you to magical places … places you may have only dreamed about.

So open your minds and let the knowledge pour in.
And … don’t forget to have fun as you grow in 3rd Grade.
