THIS WEEK!

This week we spent some time teaching our Kinder Buddies how to play card games, it was so much fun.  We love being with our Kinder Buddies.

This morning, all of the grade 3 students were separated into 5 different groups.  With Mme Smith, we did a tessellation project which you will get to see at conferences.  With Mme Janes, we made different pictures using cuisinard rods.  With Mme Boychuk we got to explore with the Osmo Tangrams.  With Mme Page, we played the game BUZZ BUZZ BOOM, this is a game were we use popsicle sticks with numbers in a can.  There are also sticks that have the words boom and buzz.  When you choose a stick with the word BOOM, everyone has to put their popsicle sticks back into the can.  When a BUZZ stick is picked, YOU have to put all of your popsicle sticks back in the can.  With Campbell.  we had to work on an open ended problem.

Gravitational Force

Today we learned about different forces.  We did an experiment to show how gravitational force works.
Joel: We learned how hard it was to hold a dictionary and then 4 atlases for 30 seconds
Diego: We learned about different types of friction.
Brooke: The 4 atlases was the hardest objects to hold for 30 seconds.
Amanda: The piece of paper was the easiest thing to hold. 
Chloie: We learned that we can use friction to keep our hands warm in the winter. 

Today in Math

We have begun to learn about growing patterns.  Today Mme had us build a pattern and as a class we figured out that for every figure the red trapeze would grow by one and the green triangle would always be 1 less then the red.  We were able to guess what the 25th figure would be based on the information that we knew about the pattern.

TODAY WAS AWESOME!!!

Today we had our very first swimming lessons.  It was so much fun.  We cannot believe that we get to do this in Grade 3.  Check out the video bellow of our first day at the pool. 

Then this afternoon Mme gave us time to work on things that we have not had a chance to finish during the week.  
The coolest part of the day was after recess, we came in and Mme had different things like Lego, Plus Plus, Knex around the room.  We got to play and be creative.  It was so much fun! 
Here is a short video of us creating!
Have a great weekend!

3rd Annual Children's Peace Walk

Today was special because all of the Grade three students went on a peace walk at the forks!
We learnt a peace song called Peace With Me Peace With You Peace With All Of Us.
We walked around the Museum of Human Rights, watched and danced to Jaques Chenier and shared our doves that we made with Mme Despins.  After we shared our doves we exchanged our doves with other peace messages.  Then we went to the Children's Playground.  After a picture and lots of fun at the playground it was time to board the bus.  What a great Field Trip that was!
