Suggestions for a grade 3/4 Science "curriculum" or kit that will last the year? - Page 2

I was born in NS and I lived in BC for a short time as a kid. NB definitely feels behind and more secluded in a lot of ways. But it's nice there. I went I UNB and I really enjoyed it.

Hee!  Well I grew up in, and now live back here in, Fredericton... so I was one of the very few of my high school friends who did NOT go to UNB.  (They don't have a music degree program)  Howdy, neighbour!

BUT, I have 3 younger children (well, one is baking) and they will be able to use the course after using the books, so that's a huge bonus since the course and the books cost about $200 total. Thanks a lot for recommending this program, it looks great and I hope my son will like it :)

 


Thanks!


Next time you want a book, try getting it on inter-library loan.  Kingston absolutely does participate in inter-library loan, and it should be free.  I will even look it up titles for you (or anyone else south of Pembroke In Ontario) if you like - pm me.

Thanks Kathy! I did look up for all the libraries in the KFPL area. So not just Isabel Turner which is mine. But there weren't many of the books. For next time, I'm going to look you up!

We lived in Freddy too. My hubby's family lives in Maugerville. It's a beautiful city and we miss our family there. :) You are right, all of my friends in music and theatre (Calithumpians) left for Mount A and to Halfiax.

Calithumpians!  I auditioned one year, but didn't make it (probably accurately so lol).  I knew tons of people in it though.  :)  Always nice to meet someone who knows how to pronounce Maugerville.  ;)

 

And Koujibougouc.

 

And Petitcodiac.

 

And when I was living in Victoria BC, we met someone who knew about Cornhill -- which most NB'ers don't even.  It's where my dad grew up. The someone we met had lived there.  And knew my dad ("Oh," she said, "yes I knew the twins!").  And her dad had built my grandparents' home.  Yeah, small world.

IRS true, very small. I always meet people who know my people no matter where I go!
