Assignments week of: October 16

Welcome to third grade! I am so excited to be a part of this learning community and ready to be "awed" by a new group of third graders. Our school theme this year is “The Best of Me, The Best of We- THE PACT!” We are committing to being the best versions of ourselves and through this theme our classroom "pact" will focus  on integrity...doing the right thing EVEN when nobody is watching.  Our pact will connect to our classroom expectations of being safe, responsible, respectful, and awesome problem solvers. 

Communication is important! I am committed to keeping my families informed and updated on classroom events, current assignments, and celebrations using this site. Please email me at lwurtele@mpsomaha.org if you have questions or concerns. I look forward to our partnership!




Math (8:45):   We continue in unit 2...more multiplication and division. Our focus will be continue our practice with order of operations and writing 2-step equations. It's really important that an adult/homework helper is checking over math homework. Thanks!
