Homework Starts This Week!

Posted on

Dear Grade 3 Parents,

Please note that today your child will be bringing home their first “Homework Menu” and IXL login information.  In Grade 3 students will receive their homework on Mondays and are responsible for returning their homework on the following Sunday to be checked by the teacher. It is recommended that students have a notebook to write their homework in each week. It is a goal in Grade 3 to have all students using Google Classroom for some of their homework assignments throughout the year, however for the time being they will be doing their homework in a notebook.

The students will be able to choose from a variety of menu options each week that connect to lessons and units being taught in the classroom. Please also make sure your child is spending 30min each day reading in addition to their Homework Menu.

If you have any further questions or concerns in regards to homework this year please do not hesitate to email your child’s teacher directly.

Kind Regards,

Grade 3 Team


Updates for Next Week!

Posted on

Dear Grade 3 Parents,

It has been another busy week in Grade 3! Classes are in full swing and the students are starting to settle into the daily routines. Below are are couple important pieces of information to note going into next week.!

  1. CAT 4 Testing for All Grade 3 students will be on Sunday, September 24th. For this standardised test students are required to have earphones or headsets. Please insure that your child brings earphones with them to class on Sunday. If you have already sent in a headset with your child’s school supplies then they will already be in the classroom.
  2. MAP Testing will be on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday next week from 8:00am-9:25am. Please make sure you child is at school no later than 7:40am on these days. Also, please ensure your child has had a big healthy breakfast on these days to help with brain stamina!
  3. This year students will be having snack outside during their recess time. In order for this to be efficient it is important that all students have a small and healthy snack packed in a separate container. Please talk with your child about what some healthy snack options might be for them during recess time.
  4. Late Arrivals- It is very important that your child be at school for teacher pick up by 7:40am every day. If a student is consistently late to class in the morning they will miss important messages and information for the day. If your child is late to school, they must go directly to the attendance office to receive a late slip. Please also remind your child that they need go directly out to the playground area in the morning.

Thank you so much and we wish you all a wonderful long weekend!

Kind Regards,

Grade 3 Team

Homework: Summer Holiday Posters (Due Sunday!)

Posted on

Dear Parents,

This week your child will be bringing home a “My Summer Holidays” Poster. We have asked the students to write and draw/print pictures from their summer holiday. If your child wants to be creative and create their own poster please allow them to do so. The poster provided is just an example of what they can do.

The students posters will be displayed in the classroom so please encourage your child to put effort and creativity into their work. We have also spoken with all the Grade 3 students in regards to reading. The expectation in Grade 3 is that every student spend 30min reading every night. This can be independent reading, reading with a sibling/parent or reading allowed.

Thank you for all the support you give your children at home. It is greatly appreciate by all the Grade 3 teachers 🙂

Kind Regards,

Grade 3 Team
