These days are always so jam packed with activities and learning. We started the day reading the book, Sadako and the Thousand Cranes, followed by the reciting of our Remembrance Day poem, The Eloquent Elephants. Our Remembrance Day assembly is on Friday at 10:45 and all of the grade 3's are performing songs and reciting a poem. Mrs. Henderson McD has asked the children to wear one or a combination of the following colors: black, white, red or gray and to be sure to wear dressy clothes.
We moved into our Literacy groups followed by the writing topic from yesterday. The class is having fun using their imagination and writing about what their school would be like if they were principal.
Our school's focus is on problem solving in math. We have been doing lots of this since the beginning of the school year. Today they children independently worked on a problem so we can see the progress that are making and guide our teaching going forward. Usually the problems are open ended with multiple solutions.
We had an hour long Music class where we joined Mrs. Leonard's class to practice the three songs for the assembly.
It was gym and library this afternoon followed by 7 more instrument sharing presentations. These have been fun to listen to. The last half hour was spent continuing our Remembrance Day "inchies".

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to our school and you are invited to come and share in this celebration of literacy with us!
Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.
Scholastic Book Fairs has the books to motivate more reading. With your involvement, we can inspire children to practice reading and read more often. Together, we can make a difference in their lives that will last a lifetime.
Your support can help our learning commons blossom with new and exciting adventures in reading, stimulating young minds for years to come.
