    2013-2014 School Year

  • The First Day Of School.

    The first day of school we learned about the ipads. We have 27 ipads in the class room. Thay have about 50 apps. All of them are learning apps. We have our smart stack of books. A smart stack is where we have easy,meadom, and hard. We started to work on our ipads. We started to find out how to use them. They are a big responsibility. We where exited when our ipads came YAY!!!! When our friend came it was exithing one was our friend best friend. it was a awesome day for the first day!
  • Soft Start

    I like soft start because if I'm in a bad mood it will calm me down. Also, I can have some fun before getting to work right away. We use Schoology to get us started. It tells us what to do. During soft start we take our planners out. Our parent had to sign it for the teacher to sign. On Fridays we get our Friday Folders. On Monday during soft start we turn them in. Soft start is soothing because the teacher will play music.

  • Our Class

    Since the beginning of the year Mrs. Duray does this thing where it's like we are a TEAM. If we treat each other badly then we get a 5 minute penalty. We do this because lots of people in the class like football. In the beginning of the year we had 24 students. Then we got Trinity and Makayla. We needed to treat eachother as a team then. A little later Nicholas moved back to Texas and Eli moved and then came back. By the end of the year we had 26 students. by Maggie

When it was time Makayla and her mom and mrs.Duray helped deliver the food to the food bank.She had that wish because she knew how it felt.
  • Geology

    Could you imagine a 3rd grader that loves rocks and geology so much that they have a tackle box full of rocks? Thats me! We loved to study geology for many reasons. First we studied erosion. We learned that a simple plant can crack a rock! I also got to share some of my rocks and I taught the class about them. We also learned lots of cool facts. We had so much fun while studying geology in Mrs. Durays 3rd grade class!
  • Music

    In music it is loud. Our Mr. Omota. He is fun sometimes. We learn new song everyday. We learned to play guitars.It is awesome in music music. In music we played bells. we needed to wear gloves so we don`t get it dirty. We sing song a lot in music. We have a lot of fun with Mr. Omota.
  • Spelling City

    Spelling City is an app that we use to help us as spellers. We have to login on our iPads first. There are 8 activities. The first one you have to do is the pre-test. The audio will say the word and sentence. When you finish you show the results to the teacher. When you show the teacher your results she will give you a list and then you have to cut and sort it. After that you have to do the next activity. The last thing you have to is do the final test then you show the teacher.
  • TFK

    Every Friday we get a TFK. It is a non-fiction newspaper. It tells us facts about the current news. It is called a TFK but it means Time for Kids. We put them in a red folder. The pic-collage has notes about something in the TFK. We take a picture of some things in the TFK and then write about it. We are creative when we make it. TFK is a great thing for third graders. by Justin

    In pe we do all kinds of games. Running games, catching games, thro0wing games, kicking games, and some are just games. Before we do anything else we do our warmups. We do our warmups because we can get morew exercize. In the begenning of the school year we we got assigned seats. We have a fun time but we are tired when we are done. We play so hard we swet like a fat chubby cow. one of our class favorite is sharks and minnows.

    CORE 5 helps me spell because on level 9 they tell you the word you can spell. If you get it wrong they tell you how to spell it. It is cool and helpful. CORE 5 is on the iPads.
  • Ms. Courtnee

    Ms. Courtnee always helped me and everyone. She came with us Mondays, and Wednesdays. She is very smart. She doesn't come often because she goes to college. She wants to be a teacher and teach 3rd grade. She is very helpful because when we are doing something like writing or reading she helps us with the word that we are stuck on. Ms. Courtnee is careful and caring and also nice because she really is smart and caring because she LOVES us so much. by Lizbeth

    How do you comuinacate? How you comuinacate is by going to discripshion and write about some thing. Schoolegy is very fun you learn a lot from it. I think other schools should use it. it is a very good you sores. How you use it is by typing in your school when you find it you click on it. then when you get there put in your number for yourself then it will take you some where then slide from the left to the right. you will see coures then you click on it and your teacher can make a folder in it.
