3B Assembly: Stephanie’s Ponytail

The 3B Assembly

This week, 3B class had the exciting opportunity to host an assembly. The students reenacted one of their favourite classroom stories, Stephanie’s Ponytail by Robert Munsch.

The 3B students made connections between the events of Stephanie’s Ponytail and the school theme for the year:

 

In the story, Stephanie’s classmates make fun of her hairstyles but the very next day they are copying her! Stephanie is frustrated and tricks her classmates into shaving their heads.

Here are some important lessons we have learned from this story:

 

“I learned that we are all different people.”

 

 

“I learned that we shouldn’t be mean to others.”

 

 

“I learned that I should show kindness. If I like something someone has I should compliment them.”

Reading with Buddies

Making Connections

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…”

 

 

Pop Art!

POP! ART

For art last week, the Grade 3 students learned about pop art. They traced their own photographs with pencil and marker, before using a ruler and coloured markers to create their own inspired pop art designs.
