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.

 

 

Japanese Culture Day

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.
