Dear Families,
I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for another wonderful week in grade 3/4! The children are settling in nicely to our classroom routines that will guide us through the school year.  I am very proud of the effort they have put forth so far!  Thank you for all your support!
What we are learning:
In Balanced Literacy we will continue to work on building our routines for Literacy, which includes 3 ways to read a book, independently choosing good-fit books, and building stamina to read independently.   Also working on writing poetry.
In Math, we will continue working on a unit on patterns. This includes identifying, extending, creating patterns, and describing pattern rules. 
In Science, we are working on scientific inquiry – a way of learning about the natural world. (Exploring the Learning Path).
In Social Studies, we are learning about the Province of New Brunswick.
Information Items/Dates to Remember:
·        It is very important that you label your child’s jackets, sweaters, coats, shoes, backpack, etc… to help us get lost items of clothing to their rightful owners!  A lost and found box has been set up on the dance floor, so you can check there if your child has lost something.
·        Just a reminder that the student fee of $45.00 is needed as soon as possible.
·        Monday, September 24 - Terry Fox Walk at school. Donations are being accepted.
·        Please note if there are any changes to your child’s afterschool arrangements, the school must have a note from you.  Thank you for your cooperation!
·        Each week, your child will be bringing home books at his/her independent reading level (good fit books). I used your child’s end of grade two/three reading level as a starting point and I will be up dating levels as I regularly re-assess your child’s progress. Please make time each night to allow your child to read these to you.  An important component of strengthening your child’s reading skills is regular home reading practice.
·        For some fun math practice at home, look for patterns around your house and community with your child and continue to practice addition facts.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at school, send a note in your child’s communication bag, or send me an email.
