Today we learned about the artist Georges Seurat. He famously used pointillism, a painting technique using hundreds of small dots instead of brush strokes. We had just done a Social Studies lesson on vegetation in New Brunswick, so the students painted leaves and other plants. Some of the paintings are not quite finished yet, but they are all looking great!
Two weeks ago our class went skating for the first time this season. We are going again this week, so please make sure the students are prepared! Skates, helmets, warm clothes. Let’s make sure the kids are ready to have fun!
We had a fantastic day today in grade 3! The kids loved the parade, our classroom party, and the lunchtime video dance party. Stay safe tonight and have a happy Halloween!
We had a great time at our awards ceremony last week. The cross country team was recognized for all their hard work this season, Isabella won the monthly Maliseet award, and Kohen and Will won our classroom awards. Terryn won the prize box draw. Woliwon and wolamsotas!
Today our class started recess a little bit early to enjoy some frozen yogurt and fruit to celebrate Terryn's great run this past Sunday at provincials. Yum!
In case you didn't know, we have a celebrity in grade 3! Ms. Terryn Bear, district champion, participated in the provincial cross country championships this Sunday...and got second place! She also qualified for the Atlantic championships next month. Way to go, Terryn! Now THAT shows how to Wolamsotas!
We had so much fun last Friday! At the apple orchard the students went through the corn maze and picked their own apples. Then we played on the playground. We even saw an eagle flying in the sky! Back at school we did some Mo Willems-themed art and wished Abby a happy early birthday. Now we're looking forward to a new fun week in grade 3!
Grade 3 took part in the Terry Fox Walk today! We met in the gym after recess to watch a short video about Terry and then walked around the neighbourhood with all of the other CHSMES students. We also completed our weekly Friday Review - a short test on some of the concepts we’ve explored throughout the week. Congratulations to Lily, Caden and Andrew for getting 100%! We ended the day with our weekly prize draw. One of our Cool Kids of the Day won - enjoy your slinky, Terryn!
Today we celebrated all of our hard work in September at Recognition Award Day. Congratulations to our award recipients: Mathew and Isabella for grade 3, Terryn for physical education, and Abigail for Maliseet language. I would also like to congratulate Terryn and Andrew for winning free posters at the ceremony. Students from the whole school who were on 50 were added to the draw and we had TWO winners in our class! Congratulations also to Mathew for winning our weekly prize box draw! See you in October!
Grade 3 has a new favourite author - Mo Willems! We have read a few of his Pigeon books, as well as Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny Too. So far we have learned that he illustrates his own books and has a daughter named Trixie. We can't wait to read more of his books!
