On Monday we finished our third and final Alien in-line skating session. We learned about putting on safety gear, getting up with rollerblades on, braking and other skating moves. Our coach Josh was really friendly and helpful.  We hope to do this again next year!
3SB, what was your favourite part of in-line skating? 

In December our class started a Holiday Card Exchange. First we made cards on our Chromebooks using Loupe Collage.  Loupe Collage makes a big picture with little images. For example, some of us made candy cane using little images of scarves, mittens and toques. Then we had a lot of snow days so they had to be finished quickly and sent all over North America.  Then we got a few cards in the mail before Christmas holidays. They were all from different parts of the United States. Afterwards we opened them and pinned them on our board. It has a map to show where the cards came from. After the holidays we got a lot of cards in the mail. It was exciting when we opened the cards and read about temperatures, different kinds of schools, how many boys and girls in classrooms, interesting facts about their schools, the teachers' names, and about their communities!  Now we are looking on Google Maps to find their locations and interesting places.  This is a great way to learn about different countries and communities in Social Studies!
To help us remember all the parts of the human ear, we've been practicing a song.  Click on the video below to hear us practicing.
3SB acted out the parts of a human ear last week.  Students, can you explain the parts of the ear and what they do?
What do you know about soundwaves?
3SB has been busy doing a web quest about Bermuda on the Chromebooks. Our student teacher, Mrs. Nisbett is from Bermuda and we were excited to learn all about this interesting country. We also got to practice our online research skills.

Students, what did you learn about Bermuda?
In 3SB we have been learning about how to describe rocks.  We have discussed rock colour, texture (how it feels), luster (how shiny it is - or how much light it reflects) and hardness.  To check the hardness of a rock, we tested to see if we could scratch it with our fingernails, a penny or a metal nail.  Can you describe a rock that you have?

Several students from 3SB were recognized at today's assembly for their participation in the IREC Running Club this fall. Peyton, Matthew, Shaelynn, Kaiden and Emily have been working hard to Sharpen the Saw! Way to go!


We are at an assembly learning about fire safety! We know to stop, drop and roll if we are on fire and to throw things out the window in case we are stuck. That way the firefighters can find us.

The firefighters also showed us their tools an gear. We don't have that gear so we have to be safe, stay low and make a plan with your parents about where to meet outside if there is a fire.

3SB listened really well when fire fighter Sara talked to us about kitchen safety. We know not to touch the elements on a stove and not to put water on an oil fire. If an oil fire happens you need to smother it with a lid. Remember to call 911 if you need help!

What else do you know about fire safety?


3SB went for their first swimming lesson today. It was a great experience for everyone. They swam, dove, brought up treasure from the bottom of the pool and had fun. Way to go 3SB! Thank you CUC staff for the wonderful lessons.
