The Start of a New Year!

Hello to all my new students!

We are about to start a new year and I am almost ready for your return.  This is our class blog, where we will share our learning with our friends, our family and the world.  Please feel free to explore the various links and pages.

I have been in the classroom all week setting up.  Tomorrow I will post some pictures of what it looks like on our class instagram @msnairnsclass and on this blog. 

I hope you have all enjoyed your summer.  I will leave you with a few questions to think about as you enjoy the last few days of vacation.

See you soon,
Ms. Nairn

Here are three questions.  You can answer them in the comments below or bring the answers on the first day of school.

1)  How many days will we be in school for from September to the end of June? 
(Hint, don't forget not to include in-service days or holidays when we do not come to class).

2) How many different kinds of punctuation marks do you know?
(Punctuation marks are used to let the audience know how to author wants them to read the sentence.  A period is an example of a punctuation mark.)

3) What does your name mean?  Why were you given the name you have? 
Talk with your family to find out why you were given the first or middle name that you have, or look in a name book or on a website to find out what your name means.

Please note that if you add a comment with your answers in it, I will not make it public (for everyone to see) until the first day of school, so that everyone has a chance to answer.  Also for students adding your name, please make sure to use your first name only.  We will learn more about why this is important during the first weeks of school.  If other friends or family members would like to leave a message you can either sign it with how you are connected to our class (i.e. Sam's Uncle) or just write your first name.

Can't Hardly Wait

In one week, I will be meeting our new class of grade 3 students.  I have been working hard to prepare our classroom and get things organize...
