Hello Grade 3 Families!
A new and holiday themed BINGO board was sent home today!
REMINDER – 3B is visiting the Book Fair TOMORROW! 3A is visiting THURSDAY!
If you have any special instructions for the way you’d like money to be spent (i.e. only on books, 1 “toy” and 1 book, 1 French book, etc), Please e-mail the teaching team!
Shavuah Tov Grade 3 Families!
Here are a few reminders for this week…
-The November Homework BINGO is due by the end of this week! Make sure you complete it hand it in before the weekend so you can win your prize!
-Dress Down Day is on THURSDAY!!! Please bring your loonies and toonies for the Royal Canadian Legion.
-Not for this week… but just another reminder to SAVE THE DATE(S) for the Scholastic Book Fair and our Annual Family Chanukah Celebration!
We are SO excited about the Scholastic Book Fair! The Book Fair is running from December 5-7. Please see the poster below for information about when our class is visiting the fair!
A few other important notes…
- Parents can shop from 8:30-8:45 or 3:45-4:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the fair
- There will be teacher / classroom wish lists, should you have any interest in purchasing a book for the class
- If you have any preferences about how your child spends their money (i.e. no toys, a French book, 2 books only, etc.). Please write us an email to let us know prior to the book fair!
Last week we performed at the school Remembrance Day assembly. We sang a beautiful song in Hebrew!
Leading up to the assembly and Remembrance Day, we had Mr. Watters (The Grade 5 General Studies teacher) speak to both classes about his time serving in the Canadian Navy and the importance of Remembrance Day. Mr. Watters even brought some gear for us to check out!
Hello Grade 3 Parents!
We are excited to share some information about the Scholastic Book Club! What is this Scholastic Book Club? Glad you asked! The book club is an EASY way to order books for your child to read at home AND each time you place an order, our whole class benefits! When you use our class code, we earn rewards to purchase new books for our classroom library!
So how do you order?
Start by visiting this website: https://www.scholastic.ca/readingclub
Then you just need to follow these few simple steps:
3A CLASS CODE: RC807375 3B CLASS CODE: RC110679
New books and flyers are added each month! Please feel free to share our class code with any grandparents or relatives who are thinking of purchasing books for your child! I hope you take advantage of this awesome program and help us earn class rewards.
As always, if you have any questions, please reach out!
PS – this is NOT replacing the Scholastic Book Fair. We will still be hosting our in-person Book Fair in December (stay tuned for details)!
Hello Grade 3 Students!
We wanted to share our classroom posters just in case anyone wanted some quick facts about the types of soil for their Soil Monster comic (on the BINGO board).
(We know you are missing your map of Canada for the Social Studies package! You will get it on Monday)
Hello Grade 3 Parents,
A new General Studies BINGO board (along with the necessary sheets) are coming home today. Like last month, the students have the whole month to complete the tasks. Please let us know if you have any questions!
We are excited for Global Maker Day! Our classroom is already starting to overflow with amazing materials and recycled goods… but we need more! Please continue to send in popsicle sticks, cereal/cracker boxes, toilet paper tubes, paint stir sticks, popsicle sticks, and plastic tubs/lids (think yogurt containers, sour cream tubs – clean please!) to help with our creativity.
Hello Grade 3 Families!
The students have been buzzing with excitement about their homework and agendas! We wanted to share a quick blog post with you to explicitly share our homework expectations, as we have been slowly rolling out Grade 3 Homework over the last couple of weeks.
For French – Mr. Polowin will give the students a Plan de Travail each Monday to put in their notetotes. This includes reading, writing, and studying for the dicteé/quiz. The work is assigned on Monday and handed in on Friday. There is a weekly dicteé/quiz on Friday as well. The students write down their homework in their agendas each Monday.
For Hebrew – After the chaggim, Morah Sigal will be sending home a short reading passage each day Monday-Thursday. Students must read the passage and have it signed by a parent.
For General Studies – Each month, the students will have a BINGO board of activities and all of the printouts required in a duotang. We will assign this on the first Monday of each month and ask it to be returned on the last Friday of each month. Students will write it in their agenda on the first Monday of the month.
All homework can be found in your child’s note tote. As always, do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions. You can also always access the Homework Expectations page (linked on the menu bar of our blog)!
Hello Grade 3 Parents!
As discussed at Back to School Night, we are so excited to launch our BINGO board for General Studies homework! Today your child is bringing home a new orange folder, filled with all of the required printouts for the BINGO activities. Reminder, this BINGO card is for the whole month (until the end of October) and we require that the students are completing one task per week!
As always, please reach out should you have any questions!
-Miss Honey & Morah Lianna
