Innovation Day!

WOW! What a wonderful morning of exhibiting young innovators’ work. It was great to see so many of you here today, Thank you. I know, how much it means to the Grade 3!

General Studies Homework Due March 11th 2020

Good Morning Grade 3,

All students will receive a multiplication strategy booklet this week to practise Arrays, Colour-block square tables, skip counting and number lines. These are all useful strategies when practising multiplication. As we are starting out multiplication and Division unit in Math (which will last until the end of March) this booklet will help when you get stuck.

You can also use an interactive tool such as YouTube and listen to multiplication raps and I will set multiplication tasks on Knowledgehook.

Thanks,

Miss M

Exciting News for Grade 3!

Good morning Grade 3 and Grade 3 parents,

Today a letter and permission form will be coming home regarding the soft launch of grade 3 student blogfolios!

The ultimate goal is to help students learn communication, reflection, and digital citizenship skills, including online safety, that will help them throughout their lives. Here are some examples of the different types of blogfolios from one of the older grades in our school.

Public Blogfolio  – This student has been blogging since Kindergarten. It’s wonderful to see how her learning has grown and developed over time.

Public Avatar Blogfolio – This student has just begun her blogging journey and has chosen to keep her name and identity private. We are still able to see her growth and interact with her on her journey. Notice how students have learned to respect her privacy by using the alias in the comments as well.

Password Protected Blogfolio – This student has shared her name and is open to leaving some posts public, however when she shares pictures or videos, she has password protected the post. Only those who have been approved by her or her parents are allowed to know the password.

Private Blogfolio – This blog is completely private. Unless you have an Edublogs account and have been granted access to this blog, you will not be able to see the content.

If you could sign and return the permission form by Monday, March 9th, 2020, I will add an electronic copy here.

We are so excited to finally begin to build a spot for all of our awesome work! If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to email.

The Grade 3 team.

RUACH WEEK!

Good Morning Grade 3 and Grade 3 Parents,

Next week is our AWESOME RUACH WEEK! WOOOOHOOOO!

Here is our schedule for the week, with all the fun activities and themes for each day:

As you can see Wednesday is a class theme – Grade 3 has decided they would like to dress up as Disney Characters.

Here is to a fabulous week! Any questions, please feel free to email any of the Grade 3 teams.

All the best,

The Grade 3 Team

 

Innovation Day Invitation – March 5th 2020

Good Morning Grade 3 parents,

I am formally inviting you to our Grade 3 Innovation Day presentations on Thursday, March 5th, 2020 from 8:45am-9:45am in the Grade 3 room.

Just to expand on my blog post introducing the concept of Innovation Day, in Grade 3 we have been looking into Structures: strong and stable. We began our exploration looking in what makes a structure strong and stable. Students researched a famous landmark, looking into the real structure (this is a part of our social studies work) using our math measurement and geometry skills to look at shape, height, weight, the scale of their structure and ensure it is free-standing. The structure must also be able to hold weights ranging from 100g-500g. All language arts skills will be assessed from oral communication to scientific report writing (hypothesis, procedure writing, concluding) to reading through research.

As elementary engineers, this is the first independent step into researching, planning, and building. I am so proud of how the Grade 3 students have fully immersed themselves in problem-solving, communicating and collaboration.  The Grade 3 students will present their structures alongside their scientific method info board and show you their experience with experimenting via QR code.  All structures have been made from recycled goods or goods which will be recycled.

I hope to see you at our Innovation Morning and for you to see all of the wonderful learning experiences happening in Grade 3.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask,

Miss M
