  • It's All About Me Tee - Ms. Griffin's Third Grade Class

    Hey, nice shirt!

    When Ms. Griffin's third grade class kicked the year off, their excitement spilled out onto their shirts. The students used these tee shirt graphic organizers to introduce interesting facts about themselves to their classmates. The boxes on these shirts are filled with humor, excitement, and hope. This wonderful (but not quite wearable) display can be found outside room 204.
