For Social, the class began their research on Ukraine culture. They were so focussed and working hard that it was hard to stop them. Needless to say they did research for much longer then I planned. (A teacher's dream) As a class we made a decision on the food that we will be cooking and the costumes that we will be wearing for our celebration. Our grade 3 celebration will be on Dec. 19. If you would be interested in volunteering on Dec. 18 (cooking day) or on the 19th, please send me an email. There are three groups that students will be signing up to work on-- decorations, dance and facts.
Book Club members listened to book talks and added new book titles to their list of books they would like to read.
We started a new math unit today--Number sense. This unit is about place value, building numbers using base 10, ordering and comparing numbers, fitting numbers in a number line and mystery numbers (based on number clues). On Mathletics this would be a good unit for students to get some extra practice.
Wednesday is the last day for our knitting club. Those children that need more time to finish their projects can continue them at home.
