We have been working hard and finally have published our first class book! You can download it here from your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, or any other mobile device with an ePub reader). After clicking on the "download it here" link in the sentence above, you may need to wait for a bit for the 72MB file to load. At that point, I recommend opening it in iBooks (free Apple download if you do not already have it installed). You will see in image like the one below (if you have not updated to iOS 7 you will have a wooden looking iBooks icon).
In the book there are photos, a video we made together, and student work (including their voices!), so you don't want to miss out!
Thanks to Daniela Mount, Sara Tamer, Byron Thompson, Jay Sewell, Christine Lowndes, Gina Han, and Dina Craft for driving our class safely to two of the four Tiburon local landmarks that we visit for 3rd-grade local history. A special thanks to Christine Lowndes and Dina Craft

We have started to learn and practice cursive. That's right, cursive! While cursive is not as necessary for success in today's world, research shows that there are clear benefits related to fine motor skill development when kids learn the art of cursive. We are learning a few new letters each week.
