The past two months have flown by and 3BR has learned so much. We’ve experienced a few school activities such as Spirit week where the students got the chance to dress up in Pajamas,Theatre, and Fitness attire. For sports day all the kids proved their skills in many different activities. They all tried their best and showed great sportsmanship throughout the day!
For Math they took the time to practice what they know from 2nd grade and further build on their knowledge of number sense and rounding off numbers. They are excited now that we have moved on to adding and subtracting up to 3 digits already!
In Science the students learned all about the scientific method: Ask a question, make a Hypothesis, do the Experiment, Observe the data and record, and finally come up with the Results from the experiment. The students got the chance to practice writing their observations about nature in our playground.
They also had the chance to do a really interesting experiment with food coloring and napkins, they hypothesized that the colors would move through the napkins into another empty bottle to create new colors.
Social Studies has become a very interesting subject for many of the students as they learned all about the different Early Humans. They learned about how fossils were found of these Early humans that proved they looked different from Modern Humans. The students then created posters with a timeline showing the evolution of Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus, Neanderthals, and Cromagnons.
In ELA students have been building their reading comprehension skills and learning how to write Personal Narratives. They have been practicing the writing process by prewriting, drafting, editing, revising, and finally publishing their work.
Last September grade 3 had the opportunity to share with the rest of the Elementary School about the IB learner profile: Caring. They showed how it was important to care for themselves, their families, friends, and to not forget about the environment as well. Their hard work really showed in their speeches, dancing, and singing.
