  • Parade will begin at 2:50. Please be sure to get a good spot around the perimeter of the building to take some good photos.
  • If there is rain, an update will be sent out on the blog and remind.

Math Practice & More!

Our class has been working on multiplication and division. One way to help students is to practice skip counting. When your child skip counts, it’s important for he/she to hold up the fingers that go with the skip count so a connection is made between the multiplication/division fact and the skip count (for example, for 3 x 2 the student holds 2 fingers up). We do these activities daily and the students are really improving! Have fun with the videos! Click on the links below for the skip counts songs!









If you haven’t purchased a third grade t shirt for your child, we would encourage you to do so. Our goal is for each student to have a shirt to wear on our field trips, and we have the added benefit of being able to help fund our Lansing trip as well with each shirt purchased. Thank you for supporting our efforts to provide fun and educational experiences for your children!

You are also able to donate money specifically to the cause and your donation will go toward funding our trip.

Presentation Schedule

Here is the schedule for the Made In Michigan presentations.  You are welcome to come watch the presentations.  Each presentation lasts about 5-10 minutes.  When you arrive, if a student is presenting, please wait in the hallway until the student is finished talking.  It can be very distracting to students when people are walking in/out of the classroom.

No changes will be made to the schedule.
