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!

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!
An excellent blog post about Minecraft!
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!

It was wonderful to ‘see’ you all!
I am the blogger of the week: I am King Papar! Welcome to the grade 3 blog!
We are in General studies. We do reading, math and finishing our structures.
We were excited about Innovation day.
Here we are finishing our province projects. They’re outside our classroom:
Here we are during math. We worked on Tangram challenges
Here we are during the gym . I got my assistant bloggers to help me create this because I was playing,
Here we are in Hebrew.
Here is computer time:
Here we are with the Shimshinim:
Thank you for reading my blog. Please leave a comment!
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! If you were unable to make it, here is a Google slide showing the experiments and a Google Doc showing the overview of the task and curriculum links.
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.
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

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,
