Toothpicks, Marshmallows, Newspaper, Oh My!

We have jumped right into our Strong and Stable Structures unit in preparation for Innovation Day!

We worked with Marshmallows and Toothpicks to learn about strong shapes and building strong structures!


We have taken the information we learned from this activity and applied it to the designing and building of newspaper bridges!



Will the bridges be able to hold up THREE heavy textbooks!?
We look forward to sharing our projects with you on Wednesday morning!
Please join us in the classroom at 9:00AM on Wednesday, March 20!


Hi Grade 3 Families,

In preparation for Purim, the carnival leaders are asking for gently used toys to give away as prizes. Do some spring cleaning and send us your tchachkas!

Ruach Week is Coming! Please see the posters below for the theme days! For Monday, March 25th, Grade 3 has decided to dress up like different apps! It can be apps that already exist (Whatsapp, Google Photos, Facebook, etc!) or a brand new, made up app! Get creative! If your child needs any assistance thinking of an idea, please let us know so we can help brainstorm! *please note, the costumes need to be put together at home – we will not be using class time to make the costumes*

January BINGO

Welcome Back Grade 3!

Below you will find a copy of the BINGO board that went home today!

We also have a few notes and reminders:

  • We are headed on a field trip to the Museum of Science and Tech! The permission form with details is in your child’s notetote. PLEASE sign it and return it as soon as possible!
  • We have added Amplify Boost to the BINGO board this month! In case you don’t remember… Amplify is the online reading platform we are using at OJCS this year. We use Amplify mCLASS to administer the DIBELS assessment and we use Amplify Boost to practice and build our skills with a Science of Reading approach! In order for the data collected through Amplify to be meaningful, it is imperative that you do not help your child complete their work on the website! (login information for Amplify is below the BINGO card).

As always, please be in touch should you have any questions!
