The grade 3's held their annual "Culture Day" celebration as part of our Social Studies unit. Students came to school dressed in their favorite cultural themes, share traditional food as well as deliver a poster presentation highlighting the various aspects of their cultural backgrounds. It was an incredible day; thanks to all of the parents who helped make this day successful. Judging from the pictures---and video--- below, these students will remember this day for a very long time.

Later on that week, students rotated among various learning centers where they worked on a variety of tasks to refine their multiplication skills. There was a domino center, playing card center, crossword puzzle center, a cut and paste center as well as a word problem center.

These word problems are too easy for Noama. Actually, they are supposed to be pretty tough, but she's a smart cookie.
