Farewell, My Friends!

June has passed us by! I hope you are enjoying the first week of summer holidays and managing to keep cool in this heatwave. 🙂

I would like to send out a big thank you to all of you parents for your support in our Grade 3 year together. I absolutely loved working with your children and I always find it a privilege to learn as much from them as they ever could from me. I wish each and every one of them the best of what this world has to offer!

To you and your family, have a safe and happy summer holiday. ❤

Our Jan Brett Clay Models

As we finished up our Jan Brett literature theme, the kids were asked to pick a favourite story and show the main idea via a clay representation.  Here’s a look at the fun we had making our models, which are on display in our hallway.   Stop by and check them out when you get a chance.

Daily 5

We are now up to four of our five “dailies” in our Daily 5 literacy program.  Students are able to choose from Read to Self, Read to Someone, Listen to Reading, or Work on Writing during each of our rounds.  We have two or three rounds each morning, as well as some literacy mini-lessons on reading strategies and writing skills.  We also enjoy a teacher read-aloud each day with a book from our featured theme.  (This month, it’s Mrs. Brokenshire’s favourite – a Jan Brett author study!!)  Here is a look at our Daily 5 in action:

We Love Math!

We have been working on building up our number skills in math, with a focus on 2-digit numbers.  We are practicing reading, writing, and showing numbers in a variety of ways.  We have also been busy with skip counting, adding, and subtracting on the 100s charts.  Ask your child about some of the “Math by Myself” and “Partner Math” games he or she has learned how to play, and check out this Animoto video to see what we’ve been up to:

Making Musical Instruments

To wrap up our Hearing and Sound unit in science, students were invited to gather materials and create their very own musical instrument!  Here is a look at what we did from the planning and developing stage, right up to the finished product.

100th Day Video

Back in February, we celebrated our 100th day of school by bringing in 100 pennies. We used them for some fun activities and then donated them to a local charity.
