Hi I’m Jack and I am the Grade 3 blogger of the week! Let me show a week in the life of Grade 3.

In Hebrew it’s our first time back from the break. We are going to start with reading. And when we’re done reading we write a paragraph in Hebrew. Here is a little Picollage.

After gym we are going to work in our blue book with Morah Batya. I’m on page 35. We are going to read page 31-32.

Now we’re in gym we are playing two games I only played one game because I was blogging about class. It was fun to do that in class!  First we played volleyball four square. Then we played like dodgeball soccer with hockey nets and cones.


We are in Hebrew and we are doing T’filah. Then in Hebrew we’re doing our houses project. This is mine.

We are in English we are going to start with reading. Now we are going to do math with a ruler you have to find something as big as 5 cm -10 cm   -15cm -20cm  -25cm  -30cm  



Let’s start the day with English. Let’s do anthems.

We got a letter from a Penpal someone sent a letter from were ever in Canada they ask  questions we have to send a letter back here is a PicCollage

We are going to the library to read look.  The head of the library is Brigitte she is holding a lot of different books.

In gym we played tugboat. So you are a ship or a boat. The ship has to throw a dodgeball at the boat there is a pilon on the boat you have to hit it when your pilon falls of your boat you turn into a protector you try to protect the boat picollage time.

Math time! We are doing a math sheet with a meter stick and a ruler.  My partner is Georgia. It was hard!

French time! We are getting a new homework booklet we are getting homework. French was quick today.

I was leader in t’fila

Hebrew time. Reading and writing again. We are going to the chapel to see what the shinshinim put up for yom hashoah.


Hebrew first. Same thing as all the other days, practising our reading and writing. Ok done we are going to switch to T’filah. I do reading with Skip look.

Now we are working in our yellow book to do some questions. English time we are going to do reading for ten minutes. Oh yeah Sam and Eliezer and Adam just got back from Israel I’m going to interview them.

Done let’s go to music with Mr R. We are back in English to go to the computer lab.

Done! Let’s move on to French. Mr P read us a French story. We are going to work in a worksheet about the book. We will have a book to help us.


Remember our pen pals today we are going to send the letter.

>Hebrew time. Reading and writing again. Ok now let’s do T’filah. Done. The shinshinim are coming to our class to do activity’s. About Yom hashoah.


On fridays we start with Hebrew. We did T’filah and our leaders were lily emet cm and Eliezer. We also watched a presentation from Eliezer about his trip to Israel. I thought it was funny because there were some funny pictures.

I love fridays because we have art. Art is one of my favourite lessons! We were getting ready for the art show in 2 weeks.

In French, we made recipes for our healthy eating work (but some people added candy!) then we colour the background for our French play. It is called Les animaux de Bayou. My character in the play is Louis la grenouille.

At the end of the day Miss M and I are putting my blog together! HOPE YOU ENJOY!


Grade 3 Seder

Grade 3 did an amazing job with their Seder! We are so proud of the whole class!

A beautiful morning with wonderfully enthusiastic singing, well-rehearsed acting and a fantastic use of English and Hebrew.

They also performed their play to the residents of Hillel Lodge.

פֹּה אֲנַחְנוּ מְסַפְּרִים אֶת הַסִּפּוּר

.אֲנַחְנוּ קוֹרְאִים בְּעִבְרִית וּמַסְבִּירִים עַל מֹשֶׁה, פַּרְעֹה וְיוֹסֵף

פֹּה אֲנַחְנוּ שָׁרִים שִׁירִים שֶׁל פָּסֵחַ

Blogger of the Week – BENNY!

Hi my name is Benny and I am blogger of the week!

In French we do the blue book when you’re finished all the work in class. You make a wordsearch in French with all the new words you have learnt. In the morning when we have french we always do the blue book. It can also be fun sometimes.

In Hebrew, we do the word of the day it’s when people pick a new word for the class. In the morning we bring in our homework and write out the Hebrew to practise our writing. Then the teacher calls people to read. In Hebrew we do the Sefer בעברית.

In gym, we do Mario kart.  You are on a scooter and every lap you get a fake dollar bill and a popsicle stick with your dollar bills you can buy stuff.If you get$ 3 you can buy a pylon if you bump into it you go to the middle you roll a dice whatever number you get you do the thing. If you have $ 5 you can get a dodgeball or turtle. If you have $10 you can get a push dodgeball and pylon. It is so much fun!

Look at the words we made with our popsicle sticks!

In general studies when we come in we read a book quitely. We love to read and our Reading Challenge is going so well!

This week in math, we practised time. In the game, we made our own watch and set the time. We then had to write all the names in the class. Then the music started! We danced until it stopped and then you had to read the time of the person closest to you! It was fun! If you get it right you write it down but if you get it wrong you dance away and come back later to try again.

This is the class doing the anthems. Today I was the lead!

Miss M did a creative writing activity with us using our imagination and the best adjectives we could think of. We made our own fantastic beast. Here is someone who is presenting his creature. You make your own beast. On the other side of the page you answer questions how you can tame it what’s its power. 

This is Olivia doing her blog she was talking about the shinshinim. She was blogger of the week.

Here is Eden presenting her penguin research.

Reading buddies I love reading buddies because you get to have a buddie and read and I love to read.

I love T’filah it’s one of my favourite part of Hebrew.

This is music one of my favourite subjects yesterday we were learning about the blues.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Grade 3 Research Workshop

The Grade Three class enjoyed a research workshop with Brigitte today. They learned all about researching on internet using key words instead of typing questions into Google. Brigitte helped the students look at research questions and figure what key words would be good to use when conducting a google search. Everyone was very engaged in the whole process and some children even started writing their own research questions and key words. Miss M. and I are going to enjoy helping the children use key words while researching in class to help the students become excellent researchers this year.

Sharing the joy of Hanukkah with new friends

The Grade 3 and 4 classes had the pleasure of visiting Crystal Bay School today to share the joy of Hanukkah with new friends. We sang, we read, we played, and shared a snack together. Our new friends enjoyed our singing, listened quietly to our story, and absolutely loved playing with dreidels.  It was so nice seeing all of the children playing and having fun together. We had the most beautiful time. Special thanks to Morah Sigal for arranging this trip. It is on days like this that I am so proud of my students and feel so blessed to be their teacher
