#BeBrave #BeAwesome

During the first weeks of school we talked a lot about what kind of classroom we wanted and what kind of students we wanted to be.  We got inspiration from the lyrics of Bravea song by Sara Bareilles and from 2 Kid President videos that you can watch below.  We decided to make our own video.  Here’s the link.

Please comment and let us know what you think?

How will you be awesome?  How will you be brave? What will you teach the world?

Welcome to Third Grade! It’s going to be a great year!

The 2014-2015  school year is just around the corner and I am busy getting ready – and that includes writing this post to welcome all soon-to-be Room 107 Third Graders and their families!  I am so glad you stopped by to visit our class blog to have a look around.  We will use our blog to write about what we are learning during the school year.  Our blog helps us to connect with our families and other students from around the world!  Right now I am writing this post all by myself, but when school begins we will write the posts together.  You will learn how to write your own comments on our blog and other class blogs too!  Blogging is one way we bring the world into our classroom.

I have had a busy and wonderful summer so far.  My husband and I went on a trip to Italy!  It was my first trip to the continent of Europe.  In fact, it was the first time that I left the North American continent!  From ancient Roman buildings and inspiring artwork to volcanoes and beautiful scenery we had an unforgettable time.

Now, get your mom or dad or another adult, and write a comment to this post.  Tell me about your summer.  Do you have any questions about third grade?  I can’t wait to hear from you!

And remind mom or dad to subscribe to our blog – just enter your email in the box on top left side.  That way you will get automatic emails every time our class writes a new post.
