Grade 3

September 19th~23rd

Hello Grade 3 families!

I am really looking forward to meeting you on Tuesday evening! It will be great to be able to have you in your child’s classroom and to be able to share with you a few of the things that we will be accomplishing throughout the school year.

This past week the students did really well at practising the routines in the Grade 3 class. They worked really hard at being focused and staying on task.

Next week I will be doing the Read Well assessments. Read Well in grade 3 will be slightly different to what it was in Grade 1 and 2. The students will be doing Teacher-Directed Instruction, Collaborative Work and Independent Work, along with Cursive Writing.  Three groups will be working quietly at their stations while I do the Teacher-Directed Instruction with the fourth group.

Today your child wrote their first spelling word list in their agenda under the section for next week. Please have them practice their spelling words throughout the week. The spelling test will be every Friday, unless it’s a holiday. Then it will be on the Thursday.

They also brought home the Our Father prayer. It’s in their agenda pocket. They will be assessed on their knowing the prayer next week. I will talk more about this during our Meet the Teacher Night.

On Tuesday your child will bring home information on math-related activities for Unit 1 on Patterning that you can do with them at home. These are fun activities that will reinforce what your child is learning at school, and will bring what they are learning out of the classroom, and into the real world!

Here is the link for the parents who would like to place Scholastic Book orders in the month of September.

Please enter the Teacher Code: RC143526 to place an order online. This allows Grade 3 to receive points with each purchase. With the points, I order new books and various items for the Grade 3 classroom.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please make an appointment to see me or email me at

I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!
