What’s going on in Grade 3

Thank you all for bringing in such a delicious dish from your culture for us to enjoy on Wednesday!

As readers this week we will be going into a new unit where we will be focusing on the thinking and sharing we do as readers.  Students will  notice what makes a deep thought and practice stopping and jotting their thinking as a they read.

As writers we will embark upon an open genre unit!   Writers will be given the choice of writing within different genres of interest, while using mentor texts to guide them in the decisions they make.  Some of the learning that will be a focus within this unit is:  setting goals, using detail, organization, and conventions.

Mathematicians will focus on making use of structure to problem solve. Students learn the conventional order for performing operations when parentheses are and are not present in an equation. 

We are starting a new unit this week! Our central idea is “communities create and share diverse cultural experiences and stories.” Thank you to the parents that will come in this week to share more about your culture with us! We will dig deep into family stories and sharing experiences.
