3rd Grade News - March 2020
What is 3rd Grade Learning in March?
In March, we will continue working on Research Clubs. Students will gather information on their chosen topic. They will be learning and applying the text structure of compare/contrast. Through this process, they will be teaching to an audience what they have learned. This is a unit on research and learning to learn from reading.
Please continue to support your child at home by ensuring that they read every night. Students should be reading both fiction and nonfiction independently. Additionally, they should be reading, researching and sharing what they have learned about their topic.
In writing workshop, we will be working on Persuasive Unit of Study. Students learn to introduce persuasive topics, support these by listing reasons, giving detail to support their opinions. During the writing process, students will use transition words to connect the various parts of their pieces and to have a strong conclusion that convinces the reader to change their point of view.
We ask parents to talk with their child about topics in which they wish to persuade an audience. Please make sure your child is rereading their work for editing and revision purposes.
