What Are We Up To In Room 221?


We are identifying text structures this week. We will focus on sequence and cause/effect. Students will learn to identify these in informational texts to help them better understand what they are reading. We will also be using informational text to learn about the TItanic and it's passengers.


We will begin to research the Titanic. Each student will choose one passenger from the Titanic to study and find out more information about. They will look at their background information, as well as their role on the Titanic.

Spelling/Word Work

For the next few weeks, all student lists will focus on different prefixes required in 3rd grade. We will still be on our two week schedule with the next test being Friday, January 29.

If you have questions about this, please let me know!
