Grade 3 & 4 News

The 3/4 class is working hard in the new year! In Reader’s Workshop we are focusing on building stamina when reading longer and more difficult books. Our spelling test lists are being based on words the students ask how to spell during class. In math the grade 3s are doing an addition and subtraction unit, while the 4s are learning about measurement and telling time. The Sochi Olympics are just around the corner, so in Social Studies and Health we have been learning about past Canadian athletes and their sports. The students worked in groups to create obstacle courses in gym and they reflected on who gives them courage by creating a courage quilt. In Science we are studying forces that repel and attract and in gym we are learning basketball skills. I hope everyone has a wonderful 2014! It’s great to be back with this group!
