Principal Shelby Sure Taught Us A Lesson!

Katlyn took copious notes
Today Ms. Shelby stopped by our class and taught a great strategy for dealing with Word Problems.  As you have probably noticed in the homework, many of the math problems that your third grader is asked to do are Word Problems, which is a nice way of saying Story Problems.  We don't use that term anymore because of all the painful emotional baggage we adults have associated with the term.

The kids (and I) were thrilled to have Ms. Shelby stop by and help us with Word Problems.

It was a great lesson, and we all learned a lot.
