Welcome to GRADE 3!  I want to welcome everyone, especially those students who our new to our school.  We will have a very busy start to the year.  Here is just a sample of what to look forward to.  

Religion:  We are taking a closer look at our theme for this Year: "CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME" and learning about ways to pray. We will also be learning and reviewing a few of the prayers that are said together with the whole school.  These include:  The Prayer of St. Francis, Our Father, Hail Mary, and the Glory Be.  

Language Arts:  We are going to exercise our hands to prepare them for cursive writing.  We are also going to train our minds and bodies so we are become independent readers and writers.  We will be using a variety of picture books and stories to help us.  Be prepared to hear the words "BUILDING STAMINA" over the next few weeks....well...the year.   

Math:  In Math, we are beginning with PATTERNS because well, math is based on many different types of patterns.  Please help your child look for patterns around town, at home and anywhere else you may be.  Also, please encourage your child to practice basic adding and subtracting as this will help them a lot.  www.freerice.com is a wonderful website to practice these skills while also helping to lesson world hunger.  

Science: In Science, we will be examining how everything is made up of MATTER.  

Social Studies: Social Studies has us examining our world with regards to community and diversity, and mapping.  We will be focusing on mapping symbols, and different Indigenous world and local cultures.  

I am very excited about this new school year.  I hope you are too!
