The Weekly Happenings
In reading workshop this week, students will look deeper into analyzing text features and learn how to teach facts in to their peers in an interesting way. Towards the end of the week, readers will set nonfiction reading goals for themselves, focusing on becoming stronger readers for understanding.
As writers this week, we will delve deeper as nonfiction writers by organizing our chapters, experimenting with different structures, and using a checklist to help us revise as we go. Your child will also look to other authors and use them as mentors to elaborate within each of their chapters. Talk with your child about the book they are writing and the choices they are making as nonfiction authors!
This week mathematicians will cover Place Value and Problem-Solving with Units of Measure .
This week students will look at two main questions, what is climate? and what is weather? Opportunities to research in books and online will be provided this week. The skill of reading, understanding and sharing in their own words will practiced. If any parents are weather or climate experts, please reach out to any of the third grade teachers as we’d love to have you come in and share your knowledge.
