Welcome to Mrs. Stiller's 3rd grade class blog! Throughout the year, students in my class will post about what we are doing each day. This will be an exciting way to connect what we are learning in class to home. That way when a parent asks, "So what did you do today?" you won't have to settle with "Nothing." :) Enjoy!
