Jun. 1st, 2018
Well, our last month of Grade 3 has arrived. Your children are ready for a Summer Break but PLEASE remember to continue with reading! The Library Summer program is a great way to motivate readers. Be sure to check it out! Lots of prizes and fun.
We have started our last read aloud – The Tale of Despereaux which our Book Club has also been reading on their own. I am in the process of completing our final reading tests with each of your children. These results will be shared with you on the report card and with next years teachers. I am very pleased with their reading growth!
We are in the process of writing and publishing stories for our Kindergarten buddies. We are publishing them on a site called “Storybird”. Students are encouraged to work on other stories at home over the summer on this site (storybird.com). They can be published and purchased if you choose to do so.
Our final units in math are Fractions, Measuring Weight, and 2d and 3d shapes. We will working in the Tinkering lab to create and sort shapes.
Our last unit – Life Cycles – has focused mainly on butterflies. Our butterflies should be emerging any day now!
We will be doing a short unit on the Ukraine and completing a class presentation as well as discussing Global Citizenship. We are going to have a used toy sale to fundraise for a local charity – PLEASE SEND IN ANY LIGHTLY USED TOYS OR STUFFIES FOR THIS SALE. (Hopefully this will help with spring cleaning!)
