The last three weeks have been very busy in Kitah Gimmel. We have been researching and developing our projects on our choice cities in Israel, and were very excited to share our 3D models (using only things we already had at home!) with the class. We have been learning from each other about different cities, new cultural foods, and ancient holy places.
The Kotel in Yerushalayim
The Clock Tower in Yafo
City of David (Ancient Jerusalem)

Keeping in mind the current times in which we live, in Social Studies Grade 3 delved into the impact humans have on the earth. Looking at the cause and effect of Fossil fuels, deforestation, and air pollution. Here are a few examples of the work produced…
Keep checking in on our blog as the Grade 3 students use the information they have researched and become News reporters! WATCH THIS SPACE!
Hey, Grade 3 and Grade 3 parents!
The Maccabiah games 202o has ARRIVED…
So here is a rundown of FAQ:
When is it happening?
Friday, June 5th
The day begins at 9:00AM
(Maccabiah wraps up at 3:00PM so everyone can make it to Kabbalat Shabbat!!)
What is the theme?
OJCS Maccabiah Games
4 Teams, 1 Heart
Whether Together or Apart
What are the 4 teams?
We have the blue team (team ROCK), the green team (team COUNTRY), the red team (team POP), and the orange team (team HIP-HOP). It will be a battle of the music genres!
MissMellenthin will share the team list with you this week and it will attached to next week’s schedule.
Are we fundraising?
YES! Our goal this year is $15,000! Here is the link to share with family and friends: bit.ly/maccabiah2020
One key feedback I need and I will email this out as well is I need to know if each student is participating with a parent, older sibling, or if they need to be paired with a teacher. This is super important for the day to be as fun as possible!
Here is to a fun-filled day! As always, if you have any further questions please just email.
Each week in Grade 3 we get together and share something we are proud of. This is been a constant in our physical classroom since September (TBH – Our class were/are always creating awesome things to be proud of so it became a daily/hourly thing!!!)
Today – I scheduled in time to share again…and boy was I proud! This will most certainly be something we will continue in our online class until the school year finishes. Not only does it bring us closer in a time when we have to be apart but I get to showcase all of the amazing things we are doing!
So today, we had an impressive rendition of the Harry Potter theme tune! Awesome work, Noa-Tili!
Katara and Meadow shared some super cool shortcuts and tools in Chrome Music Lab and Songmaker. A site they use in Music lessons.
A ROCKIN’ presentation about Crystal growing – Thanks Emma!
Linked to Rock – KitKat created an amazing Blog post on Rocks and Minerals. Check it out!

We had a wonderful stop motion presentation showing his seedling adventures then a Quacky adventure…Saving the ducks!
Another awesome blog post about Kittens and Cats! Great work KitKat and Katara!
Each week, any and all grade 3 will be able to share and showcase what they are proud of! I encourage you to make a take a look, make a comment, and share something you are proud of!
