3rd Grade News - December 2019
What is 3rd Grade Learning in December?
In December, we continue our unit of Character Study. Students will continue to identify character traits and will use text evidence to support their ideas. Students will analyze how a character changes throughout a story and determine the lessons a character learns.
Please continue to support your child at home by ensuring that they read every night. After reading, please ask your child to identify the character traits and provide text evidence to support their ideas.
In writing workshop, we will be working on a Baby Literary Essay Unit. Students will be able to make a claim about a character and support it with text evidence. Students will write literary essays about character traits, character changes, lessons learned and comparisons between two characters.
Please continue to support your child by having them discuss and write about the characters in their books and providing text evidence to support their thoughts.
Helpful Tips for Parents:
- Encourage your child to reread his/her writing.
- Ask your child if they checked for capitalization at the beginning of their sentences and ended in punctuation
