Grade 3/4 Classroom Overview
Room 132 & 134 Team
One of the grade 3/4 teams consists of Mrs. Engstrom, room 132 and Ms. Kjear, room 134.
We are so excited to be part of your child’s learning journey this year!
Throughout the school year we will be focusing on literacy and numeracy, and integrating other curricular areas (science, social studies, art, and health) in a variety of ways that include outdoor learning, inquiry & project based learning, and mindfulness activities. A big focus in numeracy will be developing number sense, increasing mental math skills, and improving critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills. In literacy, we will be working on developing strong readers and writers through daily instruction & practice, using a combination of different genres (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc). Regular numeracy and literacy routines will include activities like counting collections, representing numbers, word study and individual reading conferences.
Safety and Wellness
Safety is our number one priority at Robertson School. Students will continue to meet outside in our designated area (hard top behind the gym), before and after school. High touch areas in our classrooms will be sanitized, and students continue to wash hands and sanitize throughout the day. Please continue to help us keep everyone safe by monitoring your child for any symptoms and keeping them home when they are not well. Students will have the opportunity each day to eat a snack. Please send your child a healthy snack to enjoy every morning. This helps to sustain our learning focus throughout the day.
We’re on Seesaw! This will be our primary source of communication, as well as a learning platform. Please ensure you are connected to your child’s Seesaw journal using the Seesaw Family app, as well as to the Seesaw Class app, using your child’s home learning code. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about this, or need support.
If you are interested in volunteering in your child’s classroom for field trips, etc…, please let us know!
We are all looking forward to a great learning year! Sincerely,
Mrs. Engstrom Ms. Kjear
