The students were very excited to get back to the routine of going to the library. They were all quite keen and excited about signing out new books. At this point in grade three, children are strongly encouraged to read chapter books/short novels. It was good to see that many are doing so. I am in the process of switching out my classroom library from picture books to chapter books.
Students got together with their group and practised their reader's theatre scripts.
More division work was done during math. Many students are now working on the 3X tables for mental math. Please continue to practice this daily.
For Social we looked closely at the different landscapes of Peru. Ask your child to tell you the three main landscapes they learned more about today. (Mountains, rainforest, coast)
Our grade 3 sharing assembly will be on Wednesday, March 14 at 2:30 and 6:30. We will share some dancing, drum routines and give you a snapshot of what our year has been like.
Book Orders are due March 16.

We will be holding an Usborne Book Fair in conjunction with the parent-teacher conferences. Come and see Usborne’s award-winning range of entertaining and educational books for children from toddlers to teens! The range of titles includes arts, crafts, science, history, nature, music, early readers, hobbies, sports, activity kits, adventure stories, sticker books and puzzles. We have many books which complement and enrich the Alberta Curriculum. There will be over 300 books on display, including a selection from the more than 60 new titles released this year, and you will also have the chance to choose from over 1000 titles in the Usborne Catalogue. Rather than taking the books home at once, the books will be ordered and delivered to school approximately 2 weeks later. Come and browse and get to know these outstanding books.
We accept cash, cheques, VISA and Mastercard as forms of payment.
Your purchases will earn 25% of retail sales in free books for use in the school.
