Sociograms

April29

There are many factors in how classes are created, including gender, academic, behavioural and social needs. The Grade Three teachers collaborate together to create the class lists for next year. To assist us in this process, we are asking each Grade Three student to complete a Sociogram in class, sometimes this week. The Sociogram will give us a better understanding of who your child gets along well with.

These are the questions your child will be asked:

  1. Write the names of your 3 closest friends who you would trust to look after your special things.
  2. Write the names of 3 friends you would invite to your house for a birthday party or sleepover.
  3. Write the names of 3 people you would ask to work with on a group project.
  4. (Optional). Write the names of 3 people you find it difficult to play with or get along with.

If you have questions about this, please feel free to contact me.

Union Gospel Mission Grade 3 Outreach

February25

Dear Parents,                                                                                      February 25, 2019

Our grade threes have now taken a peek into what poverty looks like, sounds like, and feels like.And, thanks to Union Gospel Mission, they now also have a few ideas about how some Christians are responding to the lack around them that they see.

The grade 3 teachers have now also had the privilege of reading and hearing many different responses to this experience. When asked how they could or would like to respond to these needs, many of our children suggested giving out of our material abundance to help supply the lack they heard so much about.

As teachers, then, we would like to get behind our students’ ideas and invite families to bring any items from home, or the store, that UGM could then use to bless those neighbours of ours who are experiencing a scarcity of material things.

We will begin collecting items in our classroom immediately up until Spring Break, during which Mrs. Kuo will deliver your generosity to UGM directly. Please do not feel obligated to give. However, if you would like to give something at this time, below is a list of items that UGM has expressed a need for.

They do not need to be given as a package. Even one item alone will be helpful to someone.

Some items can be gently used (e.g. blankets and travel mugs).

Personal care items need to be new (e.g. socks).

GENERAL NEEDS FOR OUTREACH

  • ShampooBody wash
  • Emergency blankets
  • Reusable water bottles
  • Reusable coffee mugs with lids
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste

FOR MEN

  • Razor
  • Shaving cream
  • Antiperspirant and deodorant
  • Socks
  • Underwear

FOR WOMEN

  • Razor
  • Shaving cream
  • Antiperspirant and deodorant
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Feminine Hygiene Products

 

CLEAN, & GENTLY USED ITEMS for UGM’s Thrift Store.

Reminder: Home Reading Cube Due Tuesday

February1

Our second home reading assignment is due this Tuesday, February 5.  

Students are asked to read a chapter book that they have not read before. Using the instructions as a guide, fill out each section of the cube according to the specific instructions. READ CAREFULLY. Use the paper copy as your draft and the cardboard copy as your “GOOD COPY”. When you have finished, cut it out and make it into a cube. If you need help, bring it in to Mrs. Hesmert to help you. Your printing should be NEAT and the picture coloured. 

Students should be reading a minimum of 15 minutes daily. Remind students to record their daily reading in their reading log. It should only record on one line for one day even if they read more than one book. Completing a page should take about 3 weeks.

Most students have now completed 5-7  pages.
