CHRISTMAS IS A TIME OF GIVING… The Christmas holiday season is upon us! With the season comes the thought of giving. As we have done in past years we encourage our students to be involved in Warman Elementary School’s See A Need, Fill A Need campaign to help others in need. The total amount of money collected will be donated to the Warman Food Bank. In years past, Warman Elementary has gone above and beyond in the giving department. We would love to make a big difference in the lives of others this holiday season! This year we have three ways you can donate: Monday, December 3rd -Friday, December 21st – make a monetary donation and receive a paper ornament to decorate our lobby Christmas Tree. December 6 @ Noon: SRC Bake Sale ($1.00 per item) December 13th: SRC Candy Cane Sale. The SRC will be visiting each class at 9 a.m. to sell their candy canes (1.00 per cane) If you are able to donate baking to the SRC Bake Sale please have your baking to the school office anytime from Dec 3rd – Dec 6th (a.m.) All items must be nut free. We thank you in advance for helping Warman Elementary School students experience the gift of giving to those less fortunate. Happy Holidays!

Journal – Writing Reflections

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 28, 2018

Today your child will bring home their Pumpkin Journal to share with you.  The students have been working hard on writing reflections.  They should be able to lead you through the process that we discussed in class.  Just in case they forget I will include it here.

  1.  Student shares journal with a parent.
  2. Student explains the green or pink tab is what they thought was their best and the yellow tab is one they could’ve done better on.
  3. Student shares the assessment checklist we have been working on each day.
  4. Student shares what they feel they are good at in writing and one thing to work on.
  5. Student asks parent to give them feedback about their journal writing.  (Write what you thought your child did well in writing and what you would like them to work on.)
  6. Once you have finished this please send the Journal Journal back to school.

I would ask that you please complete this process within a week or so if possible.  Thank you for sharing in the learning process of your child!  You can look forward to reading their next journal in about 4-6 weeks.

 

New Math Unit – Addition and Subtraction

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 27, 2018

We have started a mathematics unit on addition and subtraction.  Your child will develop strategies for adding and subtracting whole numbers by using addition charts, mental math, estimation, base ten blocks, place-value charts, and pencil and paper.  In this unit, your child will:

  • Recall basic addition and subtraction facts
  • Identify and apply relationships between addition and subtraction
  • Add and subtract 2-digit numbers
  • Use mental math to add and subtract
  • Estimate sums and differences
  • Add and subtract 3-digit numbers

The ability to use a variety of strategies to add and subtract leads to the development of a strong sense of number.  Here are some suggestions for activities you can do with your child.

  • Play store with your child.  Price some of the items in your home in cents (for example, the cup of noodles costs 149 cents and the baguette costs 35 cents.) You are the shopper and your child is the cashier.  Have your child add the cost of the items you buy.
  • Roll a number cube 4 times.  Use the numbers rolled to make 2-digit numbers.  Have your child subtract the lesser number from the greater number.  Repeat the activity.  This time, roll the number cube 6 times and make two 3-digit numbers.

Science Test on Wednesday

Students will bring home their science duotangs to share.  They will be having a test on Magnetism and Static Electricity on Wednesday, November 28th.  They should know that practicing their vocabulary is the most important as well as reviewing contact forces and non-contact forces.  The Show What You Know assignment will help them prepare.  Please help your child remember to bring their duotang back on Tuesday so they can participate in the reviewing at school.  They will bring their duotang home again on Tuesday.  Thank you for your continued support!

Good Readers Ask Good Questions

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 16, 2018

It is important for students to understand that good readers (and good thinkers) ask questions while they read.  We have been practicing making quick questions and deep thinking questions when we read.  “When readers learn to question while reading:

  • they are learning the power of asking as well as answering questions.
  • they are encouraged to be curious readers.
  • they learn that asking questions can lead them to a greater understanding of the text.
  • they learn the difference between quick questions and deep thinking questions.
  • they learn that not all questions have answers, and often these unanswered questions will help to get at the heart of the story better than those that can be answered.
  • they practice what their Power-ful brains are already capable of doing – asking questions.”

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?
