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
Hello 3B Families,
We can’t believe that the first week of school has already flown by!
We have spent the week getting to know the students, set classroom routines, and of course… WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF FUN!
A highlight from Morah Sigal’s class is the שאלות (questions). Morah Sigal asks the students questions in Hebrew and they respond in Hebrew! These questions can be about ANYTHING!!! Sometimes, Morah Lianna will practice her Hebrew and answer the שאלות, too!
In Art with Morah Andy (Dance, Drama, Visual Art), we learned a dance to the song Tel Aviv! Morah Sigal let us practice our dance one afternoon!
In General Studies, we used a variety of books to help us create our classroom rules (or as Morah Lianna likes to say, our leadership skills). We read Are Pirates Polite? We Don’t Eat Our Classmates, and I Promise.
After reading the book I Promise, we also each took the time to make one promise to ourselves for the school year!
You can see all of the promises we made when you visit our classroom on Back to School Night!
(note: homework will begin after Back to School Night)
Reminder; if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please never hesitate to reach out to the Grade 3 team!
What an amazing day in 3B!
We were so excited to see our new lockers, meet our new teachers, and reconnect with old friends (and a new one, too!).
We spent the afternoon with Morah Lianna in General Studies! We read a picture book, made bookmarks, and started a brand new Math activity!
We had a tour of our classroom and started to learn the routines (like quiet reading after recess and always tucking in our chairs). On September 19th (Back to School Night), you’ll be able to get a tour of our classroom, too!
We can’t wait for you to follow along with our Grade 3 adventures on the blog! Make sure you subscribe so you can stay up to date on important information, homework, and general classroom updates!

Hi Grade 3 Families,
Your children brought home their new BINGO boards today, along with all of the required sheets! This board will take us through to Passover Break.
As always, please be in touch if you have any questions!
Shalom Kitah Gimmel Families!
It was so amazing to be back at school with all of the students in Grade 3 this week after February break… although… I am quite jealous of the suntans and vacation braids!
Here are two highlights from the week along with some reminders at the bottom of the blog post!
In Science we have been learning about different types of forces. While magnetic force seemed to be the class favourite before the break, it seems like electrostatic force is now the “most fun” force in class! Check out these big smiles and crazy hair!
With March, comes MARCH MADNESS!! Grade 3 was excited to see that we are launching our March Madness Book Bracket again this year! Now that we are in Grade 3, we have a bit of a twist! Instead of only having other teachers come join us as guest readers… we will also have Grade 3 students become the guest readers! Today one of our students read our March Madness Book!
Which book do you think will win? Let us know in the comments!
- If you have any feedback from last month’s transition to a General Studies Homework folder (rather than all electronic), please send me an email! (update: new BINGO board will be given next week, as this week we are celebrating purim and all things RUACH!)
- RUACH week is starting on MONDAY. Please see this blog post for details about each theme day!
- We are getting ready for Innovation day! I am looking for newspapers and cardboard for this year’s project! If you have any of these items, please send them to school. Thank you!
This month we have been learning about the difference between facts and opinions. It’s important to learn the difference so we can become better at identifying opinions from facts when doing research online!
We started with a read aloud and workshop with our Librarian, Miss Brigitte!
Then, we spent our library period finding different non-fiction books about various topics of interest. We then started our research by looking for facts!
Some interesting facts we learned were…
- You fit as many as 130 people in one large log house
- Leonardo Da Vinci’s grandmother lived to be older than 85 years old
- Helen Keller was deaf and blind
- Harry Houdini’s father was a Rabbi
- Most fish use their tails to swim
Some opinions we shared were…
- Sharks are ugly
- Maple syrup is yummy
- Dogs are better than cats
- It would be hard to be Helen Keller’s teacher
Do you have any fun facts or opinions that you would like to share with us? Comment below!!!
