Current Assignments

Mrs. Lurton's Third Grade Class

In Mrs. Lurton's Class, we are considered a family; a "Pensacola Beach" family.  Because we spend so much time together and have so much to learn from each other, we will treat each other with respect and kindness. We will work hard to think outside of the box, creating a collaborative and flexible environment in which to learn and think on a higher level. All students will be met at their particular learning level and style, so each student can make marked gains toward their potential.

AR Goals

Each student has a personal A.R. goal based on their STAR test data.  The goal calls for a minimum of 15-20 minutes a night of reading, and scoring at least 80% on the AR quiz.  I ask that they take their library books home nightly and return them each day.  In addition to their personal goals, the PTA has rewards for reaching point goals.


Scholastic Book Clubs

Every month, students will receive a Scholastic Book order pamphlet to order books for the month.  This is a great opportunity to get some books for your home library that are inexpensive and current to what children are reading.  The best way to order is online, and the code for our class is: PJ3NN

Thinking Maps

We are a Thinking Maps classroom, which means we use Thinking Maps for every subject.  Thinking Maps are used as a common visual language in our learning organization, that help us apply and improve our thinking processes, communicate ideas and points of view, generate sustainable solutions and assess progress over time.
