The Elementary School Student Council will be collecting for EcoCaps again this year. Please save and wash your pet bottle caps and send them to school. Each classroom will have a collection bucket in place for your contributions.
In 3B we are learning to read with a buddy. Buddy reading can be so much more than reading a book with a friend. Today we practiced making connections in our books and voicing our discoveries to our partners.
We can make many different types of connections in our reading:
Text to self
“I remember when this happened to me…”
Text to media
“I watched a movie with a similar storyline…”
Text to text
“This reminds me of something that happened in another book I read…”
March 22 was Japanese Culture Day! We had the opportunity to enjoy origami folding, top competitions, dress up, special assemblies, a potluck lunch, and aikido. Grade 3 even created some art to contribute to the celebratory day!
Thank you to the Japanese Department for organizing such a fantastic day.
Last week all of Grade 3 had the opportunity to visit Hamagin Space and Science Center. This field trip was tied in with our inventions unit of IPC.
Enduring Understanding: Inventions are continually change the world.
What are inventions and where do they come from?
Why do people create new inventions?
How have inventions impacted the world?
We are currently learning about multiplication in our maths unit. The 3RB students have been learning to create arrays to help them find the factors of a number. Check out some of their work below!
