All About the Awesome Third Graders in Room 9!

We are the 25 third graders in Mrs. Ranney's third grade class. There are 12 girls and 13 boys in our class.
We are one of four third grade classes at our school, which has 587 students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

Here we are on Lucky Hat Day!

Our school is located in a suburb of Los Angeles, California, in the United States of America!

We hope you enjoy watching the slideshow about us!

All About Us! on PhotoPeach

Please leave us a comment!


  1. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,

    Thanks for sharing such great information about your school! I have to say, one of my favorite things in the slideshow was the mural on the wall with the whales. That was incredible! I wish we had something like that in our school!

    What is your favorite part about living in California?

    Mr. Avery

      Dear Mr. Avery and your class,

      Thanks for commenting on our blog. We also like our murals in our school. We like going to parks and playing in school on the playground. We also like blogging in computer class. What do you enjoy in your school?

      Maya and Arielle

  2. Dear Mrs.Ranney's Class,
    Your school looks great. It looks like you have a lot of nature around you. It also looks like you do a lot with technology.
    Mr.Avery's student,
    Bryan C.

    1. Dear Bryan,

      Thank you for saying that we do a lot with technology because we do. We also have a lot of nature around us. Sometimes we see birds and crows on our way to music, art, and computers. Do you have P.E. twice a week? Do you do a lot with technology?

      Also do you have the best time of your life at school. I do because I get to spend five days a week with the best teacher in the whole world. Mrs. Ranney is my favorite teacher in the whole school. Is Mr. Avery the best teacher in the whole world for you?

      Best Wishes,
      Grace (from Mrs. Ranney's class)

  3. Dear Mrs.Ranney's class,
    Hello I watched the video all about us.
    You are so lucky. It seems like you have everything outside! Do you have a cafeteria? Do you have a Smartboard in your classroom? Do you wear indoor shoes inside and outdoor ones outside? Hope you write back soon!

    Mrs.Watson's student,

    1. Dear Brooklynn,
      We do not have a cafeteria, and we can only wear tennis shoes.
      Vanessa from Mrs. Ranney's class

    2. Dear Vanessa,
      Thank you for writing me back.
      Why do you have to wear tennis shoes everywhere you go? Do you have a Smartboard? What are the names of some people in your clas (I know it would be to long of a reply if you told me all their names)? How many classrooms do you have in your school? Do you have books in your classroom like we do? Do you havea library?

      Mrs.Watson's student Brooklynn

      Thank you for commenting on our blog.
      The computers in the lab are Mac. We don't have a cafeteria.

      It's kind of a cafeteria.

      My favorite series is My Weird school.
      My favorite book is The Submarine Pitch.

      Who is your favorite author, mine is Matt Christopher?
      Do you have any amusement parks there? I like to go to Disney Land, Universal Studios, and Lego Land.

  11. Dear Mrs.Ranney's class,
    I loved your video. You are so lucky to have such an amazing school! Do you like having to do a lot outside? I would love to do more outside, but it is too cold and wet here:( I really liked your canopy! You are really lucky. I wish we had a canopy, but we don't because of our weather. Again you are very, very, very, very, very, lucky:)

    Best Wishes,

In K-7 we only have 50 kids. What is the pledge of alligiance? What is the average weather? Ours is rain. Here is somthing similar about our school we both have gray schools.

      Dear Ana,

      Thank you for visiting our blog and leaving a great comment. We hang our backpacks outside because it is hotter here. We have 25 kids in our spectacular class and about 20 classrooms at our school. Our wonderful school has 587 kids! How many kids do you have in your amazing school? If we had a class pet, we would want a coyote cub because it is our school mascot and our logo. We want want to name it Chappy the cub.

      Please write back.

      Best Wishes,
      Bella and Sydney :)
