Today the students worked on a test for the math unit on Numbers. This will come home by the end of the week so you can see how they did. We will now move on to addition and subtraction with regrouping (carrying and borrowing). In grade 3 we do up to 3 digits.
We started a special project that we call Art and Writing. This project will take about a month to complete. In the end, the students will have their own rendition of a famous painting and a descriptive writing piece about this painting. During this time it is quiet reflection and sketching time. We discussed perseverance and "grit" (not giving up). Today we had an awesome beginning session as we started our sketches.
It was library day.
For Science we continued to look at classifying animals and the characteristics of each group.
