Third Grade Scoop

November 18th- November 22nd

Reading and Language Arts

For reading, we will be exploring non-fiction text and its features such as a table of contents, an index, glossary, bold and italicized print, etc. We will also be finishing up Little House in the Big Woods.

We have enjoyed reading Little House in the Big Woods and learning about pioneers. This week we will be finishing the book and going to Dallas Heritage Village. We will conclude our pioneer study by having a Pioneer Parade on Friday, followed by Pioneer games.
