Typing Club

I was very, very, VERY excited for Typing Club.

                       “Take out your chromebooks!” Mrs.Badurski (3B) said. I took out my chromebook. And everybody else took out their chromebooks too.

                        “Today we will do Typing Club.” Mrs.Badurski (3B) said. I did great and I was on the fun facts about animals, different types of objects and etc.

                            “WOW! Toby, you went that far on Typing Club?!” Mrs.Badurski (3B) asked.

                               “Yup.” I replied. “I was sick but I did Typing Club at my house a LOT!” THE END



Winning Word Study!

Every week we get new words that we study. Each Friday we get a quiz, with a partner. But here is  what happens between Monday & Friday. First on Monday we get words to study with a partner then we write it  down in our notebooks.Then on Tuesday we pick something from are spelling menu which is a list of all the stuff we can do.. Oh and did I mention that Mrs. Badurski leaves what we’re doing on the smartboard. We do the same thing as Tuesday on Wednesday and Thursday. But then it was Friday. Mrs Badurski said,”

” It’s time to take the quiz, so get with your partners.”

So every Friday we get a quiz with all the words we get on Monday.  

 And that’s really it for what I mainly want you to know about my ( Winning Word Study! )


What Is Word Study?

What is word study? Word study is when we get our words for the week. Every Monday we get new words. On Monday, when my class gets into the classroom, there is a sheet at our table that my teacher (Mrs. Badurski) hands out. Not everyone gets the same words. Only a few people have the same sort. Since not everyone has the same sort, we have word study partners. In the morning, we cut out our word study words from our word sort. When we are done, we sort  our words. After we sort out our words, we check our words with our word study partner. How do we check? We check by one partner coming over to one table (if we’re not at the same table). We would say a few words at a time, and once we say them our partner goes back to their table and checks if we have the same words in the same column. If we do, then we got the words right. If not, then we figure out our sort. On Monday thru Thursday, we practice our words for the quiz on friday. We practice by using our spelling menu in our word study notebook.    

Terrific Typingclub

In 3rd grade,  we type on a website called Typing Jungle. In typing jungle there are many different levels. As your levels get higher,  they become harder. There are also some videos. There are videos because the videos have facts,  and other stuff you should know about typing. Here are some of the things I learned from the videos: posture is important, sit straight,  be healthy. The history of qwerty. NEVER EVER LOOK AT THE KEYBOARD! For that problem, for most lessons, there is a picture of a keyboard at the bottom. I suggest that you don’t look at it,    because there are some lessons that have no keyboard,  and you have to type something in a limited amount of time.  



Amazing Bar Modeling

In 3rd grade you learn how to do bar modeling. When you do bar modeling you might have to do adding or subtracting, that’s because it doesn’t always come right to your head. When you draw bar models you are going to use a lot of lines. Bar models kind of look like bars.  I know it sounds weird,  but it does not look weird. I like bar modeling. I think bar modeling is fun because instead of just doing adding or subtracting you can make it a little more complicated. I also like bar modeling more than mental math because instead of just using lines you can use lines and adding or subtracting. I like adding and subtracting so much because I think it’s fun. I think it is fun because you use a lot of numbers.
