Welcome to Mrs. McMurray's 3rd Grade webpage! Let me begin by telling you a little information about myself! This is my thirteenth year teaching and my eighth year teaching third grade. I have taught at HES all thirteen years that I have been teaching, , and I have also taught first and second grades. I graduated from Liberty University in 2003. I love reading, singing, drinking coffee, and spending time with my husband, family and friends.
This year, we are implementing the flipped classroom model of learning in third grade for math. A flipped classroom is a classroom where foundational learning is assigned as homework in the form of watching videos or reading/highlighting notes. Students gain background information about new topics and come to class ready to practice and extend their knowledge on the topic. It's really innovative and exciting!
In our classroom, we follow HAWKS Pride, which is our school motto:
H - Have self - control
A - Always be a good listener
W - Worthy of learning
K - Kindness in words and action
S - Speak with respect
