A few classroom pictures

A few weeks ago I blogged about teaching my 3rd graders "figurative language" I have to say it was the funniest time of year so far! We really had a ball..(ha ha) Here are some blurry  bulletin boards pics.
In our Everyday Math Program we are just finishing up our GEOMETRY UNIT
My class loved The Greedy Triangle story, then we made a lot of different triangles with straws and twist ties. ( rather messy, but fun)
The Greedy Triangle (Brainy Day Books)
I spent a lot of time this year on Authors Purpose!  I found WAY too many ideas on Pinterest.. My favorite was a PIE flip book.  I added it as a center, the students would browse the library, or their SS weekly newspaper and list the title of the story under the appropriate flap!

Love your ideas!

Can anyone tell me what the P, I and E stand for, regarding the "Author's Purpose" PIE flip books?

I can't enlarge the pics to see.

Thank you so much, these would be great for this month.
