We're learning about ancient Egypt in social studies! Some of the topics we're exploring are hieroglyphs, pyramids and sarcophagi.

We thought ancient Egypt was so interesting that we started designing our own sarcophagi in class! We're focusing really hard because we learned when we looked at examples that there can be a lot of detail on a sarcophagus! They look really amazing!

We're learning about les déterminants possessifs and how they agree with our nouns in French! We're also exploring conjugating verbs!



During our reading times we're keeping track of our notions, ideas, and wonders in our journals while we read! We have a LOT to say about what we're reading!

Expressing Our Opinions & Editing Our Work


We've been learning how to express our opinions in French. It's a lot of fun being able to speak and write about what we think in French. We had a fun oral debate as a class on which book is the best, followed by writing our opinion on whether adults or kids have more fun.




We've also been working really hard learning about editing and how important it is!

Busy Times at ERB

 We've had a really busy time at school!

We've been preparing for our French speeches by practicing how we use transition words to talk about our weekends! We had so much fun practicing how we go from one idea to the next.




We also had fun today exploring our emotions and how we manage them. Each grade 3 classroom had a different emotion (happy, sad, angry...) and we talked about what we do when we feel that emotion! We rotated from room to room talking with the other grade 3s! In our room kids danced it out to Pharrell Williams' "Happy" before talking about what we do when we feel happy or excited.

We even had a scavenger hunt to use what we've learned about directions, maps, and continents. We used our knowledge of directions to follow clues hidden around the school and answered questions hidden under the clues!
