What Are We Up To In Room 221?


We will wrap up our study of text structures this week and have a review day Wednesday with a quiz on Thursday. We will continue to learn about the Titanic through reading informational texts so we can compare the information each author gives.


Students will continue writing their Titanic passenger reports. We are focusing on adding a strong introduction and conclusion for our pieces. We will talk about pulling the reader into your story and having a strong way to wrap up the story without using "the end" to finish a paper.

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, February 12.

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