Flat Stanley - "Supergirl" - has been to Newfoundland!

Flat Supergirl recently visited Kaitlyn's Nanni Panni and Aunt Renee in Spaniard's Bay!  They toured historic places like Signal Hill and Amelia Earhart's model airplane.  They also got to see the Newfoundland Clipper......a boat in Port de Grave, a fishing town near Nanni Panni's house.  In Newfoundland, lots of people fish for crab and cod.  What a wonderful adventure to be able to see where Kaitlyn's family lives!  Kaitlyn tells us that NEXT, Flat Supergirl will travel across the rest of Canada!

Patterning Practice Websites

http://www.linkslearning.k12.wa.us/kids/1_math/2_illustrated_lessons/5_Patterns/index.html

Hi folks!
We have a patterning test coming up soon!  The above websites are a great place to practise for the test.  The first website contains a great video that explains WHERE we see patterns and WHY we have them.  It also contains an interactive activity in which students need to identify whether or not the shapes/colours etc. they see are actually patterns or not.  

The second website is filled with different activities for all different subjects.  You can choose the grade 3 pages and then choose "numbers".  Under "numbers", there are ALL KINDS of activities to choose from.....all of the math strands are covered!!!  Find the activity with the large yellow truck titled "Number Patterns".  This moves away from the shape and colour patterns and into the number pattern practice that we need.  Skip-counting is patterning!  It will be a very important skill from here on out in Grade 3.  When your child has completed this practice, he/she can choose from the many other activities on this website too.  It's important to maintain all skills learned because they pop up over and over again.  There is an activity to practise "rounding".......multiplication and division activities are included too and those are coming up SOON!

Remembrance Day

I don't have any pictures to post this week but I DO have this.......I am so very proud to be a teacher at Nottawa School.  Not only were my students (your kids!) incredibly mannerly and respectful today at our Remembrance Day Assembly, but so TOO was the entire school.  Thank you, Nottawa students, for being the kind, caring kids that you are.  You are proud to be Canadian and you're grateful for the peace and freedom that you enjoy with your families each day.  We are so proud of you for that.  Hug the ones you love Nighthawks......

Halloween Blow Ups are always so FUN!!!

What a "spooktacular" time we had on Halloween Day! 










Flat Stanley is in Australia!!!

How exciting to receive a letter and pictures from William's friends in Australia!  Flat Stanley greeted us with a "G'day mate!"  He visited a beach where he flew a kite and ate "hot chips".....French Fries here in Canada!  He told us of an upcoming adventure on a Qantas airplane to Hamiliton Island too!  We'll look forward to more pictures of his scuba diving adventure there!!!

Pictograph Party in the Portable!



Here are some examples of pictograph questions as they might appear in May during EQAO week. We've been working at questions such as these over the past few weeks in anticipation of our test on Monday. Give them a try at home if you like :) The pictures below show the fun group work pictographs that we've created with a Halloween theme.
