Our Week in Review

Hi everyone! It was a great week in 3rd grade. The students worked so hard on learning to write constructed responses, we started our unit on coding, and they were assigned to their new science group for this new 9 weeks! I am looking so forward to all the great events we have coming up these next couple of weeks.
