Last week we were thrilled to meet our little pre-k care buddies!  Grade 3’s did great to show them around the library and read a book to them.  Ask your child what they learned about their new care partner?

On Tuesdays, we have been lucky to have student nurses along with one of our school counsellors teaching us about Zones of Regulation.  This is all about consciously recognizing your emotions and finding strategies to self-regulate.  The students are doing so great at sharing during these lessons.  Ask your child which emotions fit in which colour?

New Math Unit – Numbers to 1000

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 17, 2018

We have started a math unit on numbers to 1000.  In this unit, students will:

  • Show a 3-digit number in a number of different ways, using concrete materials, pictures, words and numbers
  • Compare and order 2-digit and 3-digit numbers.
  • Skip count by 5s, 10s and 100s forward and backward to 1000.
  • Skip count by 3s, 4s and 25s forward and backward to 1000.
  • Estimate how many items are in a large collection by comparing it to a known quantity.

Here are some activities you can do at home to support this learning:

  • use play money to model numbers and to develop understanding of trading or grouping.  For example, show that $342 can be modelled as $300 + $40 +$2.  Using play bills for $1, $10 and $100 to reinforce place value.
  • Play a number comparison game:  Remove the tens and face cards from a deck of regular playing cards.  Deal 3 cards to each player.  Each player uses the cards to make the greatest possible 3-digit number.  The person with the greater number gets a point.  Repeat.  The first player to get 10 points is the winner.  Play the game again, this time making the least number possible.

Our First Class Auction!

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 11, 2018

On Wednesday, Oct. 31 our class will be having our first auction. The students have been earning tickets for  positive behavior, and will be converting them into Monopoly money.  They will be able to bid on items that other students will bring to sell. Each student is given one opportunity to sell something to the class. They may bring ONE food item and ONE recycled or other item if they wish.  Recycled items include things that families would sell at garage sales, such as used books, videos, toys, posters, souvenirs, etc.  Students should only sell items that have been given parental permission.  The money earned at the end of the auction is then placed in a bank account, and used at the next auction.  Class auctions are a lot of fun, and work on improving listening skills, adding and subtracting money, and self confidence.  We look forward to having a great time!
