Today 3rd grade had a “4th Grade Field Trip”😀. 3rd grade prepared questions for the 4th grade experts and each 4 grader prepared “4th Grade Survival List” of dos and don’ts. We paired up with a 4th grade partner and got busy learning all the things!! We saw lockers and their year’s binders!  Mrs. Lelm read her survival guide list and showed us some 4th grade math.  It was fun and informative and I have 18 kiddos who can’t wait for 4th grade!   Ask your student about one of Mrs. Lelm’s items on her Survival Guide and what kind of math problem she showed us on the board!!
