Third Grade Publishers Tea (Live from Wilson)

June 18th, 2014 · No Comments · Classroom

So what’s in your writer’s toolbox?  Miss Reagan’s third graders shared their writing secrets as well as four of their published works at a Publishers Tea.  Parents were invited to read excerpts from their projects and had an opportunity to ask the young authors some questions.  Below are two animotos from this special event. (Just as an FYI- I made these using the animoto app- it was very easy to upload the images from my phone and then I just edited.  It was so quick, I had the video ready for the students by the time the parents were leaving the tea!)

Here is an animoto shared with me by Mrs. Mahieu- it was shown this morning at  the Green Gala at the SUES.  Enjoy her students learning more about the environment.

If you are looking for algebra or calculus help, you might want to try Study Geek.  There are problem calculators (the good thing is you can put in your own problem).  The bad thing is the free version only shows the answer (you can upgrade for the step by step results).  The good thing there are a variety of choices (i.e., simply, find the domain, rind the range).  There are also lessons on the site that do walk you through specific problems.  You can see the complete post here from TeachersFirst. This might be something students could use to check their work.
