About Our Class

We are a class of third grade students in Arizona. This blog was started in 2011; the posts from the 2011-2012 school year were written by Mrs. Hamman’s former class of fifth grade students.

On our first day of school this year, we discussed what we’d like our classroom to look, sound, and feel like. After our discussion, we decided that we wanted our class to be a place where we could have challenges, explore new ideas, be creative, use technology, and make connections with other people.

With these goals in mind, we decided on a set of classroom norms.  Norms are statements of how everyone, both the teacher and the students, should act in our class.

This year, our norms were inspired by a post on great blog called Venspired Learning.  These are the norms which we have posted in our classroom, and which we have all agreed to follow this year:

  6. Hi Mrs Hamman and students.
    My name is Charlee and I live in Tasmania, Australia. Its pretty cold here, is it hot where you lot are? I’ve heard it is, well read it is. Is it? My friend and I were wondering if you have TimTams over there? I really want to travel when I get older, would you recommend Arizona? Thanks :)

    • Hi Charlee! Thank you for your comment. We’ve had a nice mild winter here but now that it’s almost spring the weather will be heating up soon. Arizona is a great place to visit! It’s hot in the desert parts where we live in the summer but there are lots of places in the north that are cool all year—the Grand Canyon, for one example. Where would you suggest we visit if we came to Tasmania?

      Yes, we’ve seen TimTams in some stores here. Not many of us have tried them, though. The most popular cookie where we live is the Orea. Do you have those in Australia?

      Sincerely,
      Mrs. Hamman’s Class

  10. Hello Mrs Hamman and all in your third grade!

    My name is Mr Brown and I teach a mixed grade three and four class in a small school just outside of Exeter, in England.

    I came across your blog and wanted to let you know how fantastic it is (particularly your venspired post!).

    Willow Class (that’s the name of our class) will certainly be looking at your work over the coming year.

    Please feel free to have a look at us too – we have quite a new site but hope you may enjoy it.

    Thank you!

    • Hello Mr. Brown! Thank you for your comment. We have added your blog to our blogroll and we are looking forward to following your class this year. Some of us looked at your curriculum page and it led to a discussion in our class about what a “Victorian” is! That was a new word for most of our class.

      Regards,
      Mrs. Hamman’s Class
