Media Moments

3rd Grade Edition - August 2014

Welcome to Media Moments

In this monthly newsletter, I will be sending you resources that are aligned to your pacing guide. Most of the resources that I include in these newsletters will be available in the media center but I will also be including a few technology resources and ideas of how to incorporate them into your instruction.

I hope that you will find these resources helpful.

Back to School Books

There is also a good book in the media center to go along with the activity. This book is also great at introducing the scientific method to your class.

Tech Tip

As you begin the year, I am sure you are thinking of ways to organize and simplify things within your classroom. Remind is a great app that you can use to communicate with your class parents. Instead of wasting valuable paper and time to type out, print, and copy a reminder for your class, you can use Remind to keep your parents informed. Check it out!
