Book buddies


On Friday afternoons we team up with Miss Koenig's kindergarten class to read.  We practice fluency and have had fun getting to know new friends.  Here is Abby's post about our Fridays:

Math games


by Erik

At math time we play math games on Sheppard software like math-man and fractions shoot. At math- man is a game where you try to get the right answer to the question. At fractions shoot you shoot the  right fraction. There are more math games on Sheppard software so check it out for yourself! 

Math Games

 Math games we play in class are on a website called Shepard Software. My opinion for favorite math game is Monkey Drive. You’re a monkey driving its way through a course to get bananas , you have to drive into math problems or answers you can get to with the number on your car. So there is math games and spelling games, and MORE-MORE-MORE! And that concludes our presentation about monkeys, I mean math games. Bye and be sure you check out Shepard Software!

RMSC field trip

The whole third grade went on our first field trip at the end of January. We went to the Science museum and planetarium. The planetarium show was about the movement of the sun as it appears in the sky. We learned that not only does the angle of the sun's rays shift from direct to indirect as the seasons change, but it rises further north and south as the seasons change as well. Seeing the projector that creates all the constellations in the planetarium was very cool.

We also had lots of fun wandering around the museum with our awesome volunteer chaperones. We climbed the rock wall, went in an explorer simulator, learned about electricity and physics. Some if us even got to dig for dinosaur bones.

We really appreciate all the parents who volunteered and looked after us on this fun trip! Thanks so much! We are looking forward to another field trip to attend a performance of a local orchestra and later in the year we will get to go to the butterfly exhibit at Strong Museum! Check back for posts to see pictures and read about those trips!
