Grade Three

Grade Three have started their school year yesterday. I am their class teacher. Every single year I have had the privilege to be classroom teacher, I have felt honoured and happy to be a class’ teacher. This year as well.

The first two days just passed so quickly, they literally flew by. Getting organized, creating a warm, caring and safe environment. Getting to know every child, assessing their numeracy and literacy…. finding out their little specialties and favourite actitivies.

My focus on the last two days was on the social development of each child, their reading, their oral comprehension, their level of English, and their familiarity with Math manipulatives and addition/subtraction facts. I’m amazed how “small” the seven year-olds are, in comparison to my previous two classes (7/8 yr olds and 8/9 yr olds).

We started our unit of inquiry, but more on that another time.

I look forward to the year!
