Welcome to our brand new Mary Bergeron Elementary School and Grade 3B! I look forward to our partnership in engaging with your child in an exciting year of learning.
Some students will begin a structured levelled Read at Home program later this month while others will be encouraged to choose materials at their level from our classroom sets and Reading A-Z. Parents of students in the structured program will be given more information.
The first weekly Spelling test will be on Friday, September 15. Students will write new Spelling words in their agendas on Mondays. Please help your child study for these spelling tests.
This month we’ll be working on Patterns in Math. This involves plenty of hands-on work with blocks and tiles.
In Science, we will study Rocks and Minerals. Please help your child find a small rock that they can bring to school and share with the class.
In Social Studies, we will learn to compare our lives in Alberta with those of children and their families in Peru, Tunisia, Ukraine and India.
This year your child will also enjoy regular classes in Physical Education from Mr. Hyatt and in Music from Mrs. Prince!
Please check your child’s agenda and pouch daily for messages and I’ll do the same.
Thank you for your support!
Mr. Mike Belecky
Grade 3 Teacher
