The final writing unit of this year for grade 3 is Informational Reports. Students are researching and writing reports related to our PYP Plant Unit. Here are some websites for kids that have many examples of non-fiction writing. Kids, take a look through them and see if you can get any tips for your writing. Enjoy!
Check out this video from YouTube that we watched today in 3R. Enjoy!

HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS? Class 3R has organized a scrumptious (meaning yummy) BAKE SALE!!! The money from the bake sale will go to CCBRT which is an organization that helps people with disabilities. It would be awesome if you came and bought something. We are also trying to get donations. If you are interested in this, then come to I.S.T. Elementary at the 1/2 quad. It is this Friday, the 28th of September. Thank you for your time!!!

Hello Families! This week we started our second math unit on addition and subtraction. Many of the EM Unit 2 Family Letters we sent home yesterday were blurry. Below you can find the letter or click here to download it. Also, don’t forget to check the student page for addition and subtraction online games to use at home during free time!
Just a reminder, Activity Sign-Up started today. Please check your email for the link to register for After School Activities.
Today in Mrs. McKillip’s class, students were treated with a special presentation from Zeenat Thawer on the meaning of Ramadhan and Eid. Many students were already knowledgeable about Ramadhan and Eid! Important facts we contributed to today’s presentation:
What is Ramadhan?
When Muslim’s fast (Ananya, Jakob)
The name of the 9th month of the Muslim calendar (Ayra)
An important time for Mulsim’s to pray (Tanisha)
Right now we’re in the month called Shawwal (Alijawad)
What does the new moon look like?
It almost looks invisible. People have to use telescopes to see it (Jaden)
What kind of things do you think fasting teaches us?
To be more patient (Ayra)
Who should fast?
Compulsory for Muslims age 13 and up (Alaisa)
What is Eid ul Fitr?
End of Ramadhan, sighting of the new moon (Yasmine)
Day for having fun to celebrate the end of fasting (Khushi)
After prayers, people greet each other by saying Eid Mubarak (Ananya)
It’s hard to believe we have only 5 school days left of third grade. The year has truly flown by!

Many of you donated money to go towards our staff appreciation party. Thank you! Yesterday after school a delicious meal was provided for us under the covered court. Here teachers, assistants, cleaners, gardeners, and all of the I.S.T. support staff we depend upon each day enjoyed a great time of socializing and eating together. We appreciate your contribution and thank you very much.
