The Third Grade Team
We will learn how to give our beginning of year pieces a “makeover” so that we can learn how to improve our personal stories. I’ll know I have it when I can revise my lead, details, and closing based on my writing goals.
We will learn close reading skills so that we can deeply understand the text. I’ll know I have it when I can use reading strategies to help me fully understand the big ideas in a non-fiction text.
We will learn how communities in the past met their needs so that we will understand how communities have changed over time. I’ll know I have it when I can explain information about Ancient Egyptian communities and compare their culture and community’s characteristics to my own community.
We will read analog and digital clocks so that we can determine the time. I know I have it when I can tell time in a variety of ways and solve word problems involving elapsed time.
We will investigate the differences between a push and a pull so that I can understand how a push and pull are a force. I know I have it when I can describe what a force is.
