Grade 3 & 4 News

Another month has passed us by and we are getting closer to Christmas. This past month, the class enjoyed a fun Halloween party put on for us by a few Grade 12 Home Ec. students. Thank you, Chris, Ryan and Jesse! Everyone looked great in their costumes! Report cards have been sent out and congratulations to students on their hard work so far! We are getting into the Christmas season and practices for our Christmas concert will be starting this week so there are plenty of things to keep us busy.

Here are some of the things we have been doing this past month in our subject areas. In ELA, we are soon wrapping up our Friendship unit. We also took a break from our unit to write some creative stories. The students did a great job of coming up with ideas for each of their stories and as well as creating an illustrated picture book version of it! They are all excited to bring them home after they have been shared with our class. In Math, the grade 3’s continue to look at numbers between 1 and 1000 and the grade 4’s just finished a unit test on numbers. Both groups are doing some work on the computers with IXL math. If you can get a chance to help your child work on some extra skills at home that would be great! Our Science unit on Structures and Materials is soon wrapping up and we will be having a test at the end of this week or early next week. Our Social class continues to research and learn all about Saskatchewan. In Arts Ed., the students just finished a Pointillism project and they are very excited to bring them home, along with some other art projects that will also be coming home soon!

I sent out a parent email last week in regards to our new behaviour reporting system we are using for our class. I would like to thank everyone for all the positive responses and support given. Please continue to make an effort to review the report with your child each night and send it back signed so that we can continue to communicate with each other. Again, never hesitate to contact me anytime! Thanks,
