Dynamic Broncos Weekly Update
December 8th - 12th
We continue to study the people in our books as a professor would. We have been pushing ourselves to read with our minds on fire, thinking not just about the facts and events in our books but what we think about those facts or events, what they make us realize about our characters and why we think they are important to the story. As we do this we are developing theories and ideas about the characters in our books.
Last week the writers in our class reached a new level of independence. Each writer decided whether they would stick with the story they began drafting, revising and editing or begin a second story. Writers will use everything they have learned to take these stories all the way through the publishing process. We will have a small (informal) publishing celebration on Wednesday, Dec. 17th. Writers will have an opportunity to share their pieces with their third grade friends in all three classes.
This week we begin a new Spelling Cycle. The Tic Tac Toe grid activities are due Wednesday, December 17th. We will also have our assessment on this date. You should have received an email earlier today with links to the videos explaining each sort.
Song Quiz next Tuesday, December 16th.
