Text proof is a big focus for us in third grade this year.
Students used technology devices to create videos about character traits from our Language Arts story Amazing Grace.
Cooperation is an important part of using technology!
You may have noticed that the students have a half booklet in their orange folders. This is their reading log for this year. If you look inside you will notice that students have made a goal for third grade this year. All students have chosen to read at least forty books, some have chosen a higher goal. This means they need to read at least one book a week. While this does not designate a certain number of minutes read per day, it does mean they should be working to complete a book each week and record the book title in their reading log.
How can you help? I remind students daily to keep up with their reading so they are on track to complete a book each week. You can support that effort at home by checking their log, making sure to remind them to record their completed books, and ensuring they keep that log in their orange folder all the time. It will be easy for you to tell where the books should be logged since we have broken down each nine weeks into sections which include the dates for that nine week.
I hope students will improve their reading with this effort and will feel the sense of accomplishment when they have completed this task at the end of third grade. By the way, I am working on completing my forty books too!
