Hello everyone! I am often posting things on our class Facebook page for parents to see, however, the students aren't able to see our videos that way. I'm going to try to catch up and add some videos to this page for the students! Please check back often to see if there are new things added. I will try to add videos on here from now on as I add them to our Facebook page.

Dr Seuss's Birthday

We love reading! We especially loved celebrating our love of reading on Dr. Seuss's birthday! We had fun reading and eating snacks.

Valentine's Day

We had the best Valentine's Day. Thank you parents, for all your help in making it so great! 


Math Buckles

We have been working really hard on memorizing our Math facts! Every month we go to a grade level assembly with Mr. Pitcher and celebrate those students who have passed off their math facts.

3rd Grade Culture Day

I can't say enough about Culture Day! Every month we have parents that have volunteered to come and share what they know about another Culture/Country. We have LOVED getting the chance to learn new things about people all over the world. We still have several Culture Days left, so, parents, if you would be willing to share with us what you know, please sign up for a date! 

February Class Dojo Recess Reward!

We have been working extra hard during our Reading time (Centers). Students earn points for staying on task on their own while I meet with small reading groups. We finally made it to our 500 points for a free recess!

Math and Art!

We love doing art in our class, and we often take time for it. For this lesson, we learned about arrays in multiplication and made "City Arrays". So much fun!

Yummy Math!

We have been having a great time learning Math in our class. Here we are using "Cheezits" to find the area of different figures. 

Gingerbread Houses

December was such a fun month! We had so many parents and grandparents come to our Gingerbread House Making activity for the whole 3rd Grade. Thank you for coming!

Christmas party

What a great Christmas party we had! We have so many great parents that volunteer their time to come and help us. 

Bobby Lawrence Karate Visit

We loved having Bobby Lawrence Karate come and do a lesson with our class! We learned a lot about focus and working on our goals. 

Chromebooks in the classroom!

In 3rd grade we focus a lot on proper keyboarding skills. We also learn how to do really cool things on the computer. Here we are doing our keyboarding lessons in class. We love having cool chromebooks to use! Thanks to Mr. Pitcher for buying them for our school!


We had the best Halloween! It is always a fun day to see students in their Halloween costumes. We had a great day celebrating. Thanks to the parents who came to our party!

October Field Trip

Best field trip ever! We went on a walking hike up Provo canyon, ate lunch, and then went to the BYU Planetarium. We had so much fun and we are so grateful for all of the parents that came with us!

YouTube Video

The kids have been working really hard on their behavior! We use Class Dojo during Reading in the morning, and throughout the day when we have transitions, are walking in the hall, or coming in from recess. They set a goal of 500 points for an extra recess, and we just hit 500! Congratulations to all of the students! We had so much fun playing a little extra today. Parents, if you haven't had a chance to join our Class Dojo page, please do!

We have worked so hard in Keyboarding for the last two months, and our hard work has paid off! We just finished typing our very first essay and I couldn't be more proud of all of the students! I was amazed at their typing abilities and so excited to see their final results. I like to always be working on an essay-we will do either Opinion or Informative. Our first one was all about Halloween. I also love to do art with the students, and I have them do an art piece each time we complete an essay. Look at our finished results! Amazing!

We spent time investigating our class website on Friday! The students had so much fun. In the next several weeks I will be adding students to certain accounts that we use frequently for reviewing math and other subjects. Hopefully we can get them to memorize their login information so that they can practice at home on the computer, too!

Today we had such a great time in Math! I introduced the students to the online game "Kahoot". We are just about finished with our place value unit and so we played a rounding game for review today in the computer lab. The students loved it! I showed them how to find the site at home so that they can play with family and make up games of their own. The games can be played with any device that can be connected to the internet. Take time to play it with them! It's super fun.

We have had a wonderful first week of school! Things have just gone so great and I am so proud of all of the students for adapting so well to our new school. Our principal, Mr. Pitcher, is amazing! He has worked endless hours to make the transition nice and smooth. He is the most personable person that I know! He loves the students and is getting to know all of their names. We have an amazing faculty, as well! I feel so proud to work here.
