What is Third Grade learning in May?
In reading workshop, we have begun working in Research Clubs. Readers are growing ideas about nonfiction. They will learn to combine information from across texts to teacher others about a topic. Readers are noticing text structures and using them to organize their learning.
Please continue to support your child at home by ensuring that they read every night. After reading, please ask your child to share facts and details about what they’ve learned.
In writing workshop, we are publishing our persuasive essays. Student have learned to state their opinion and support with facts and details. They were able to demonstrate an understanding of their topics through academic conversation with their peers. Students should be rereading their writing and revising and editing.
