The Third Grade Team
We will review nonfiction text features and elements of non-fiction text so that I can deepen my understanding of informational text. I'll know I have it when I can identify the purpose of text features in non-fiction text as well as determine main ideas and details of information.
We will explore the features of a book review so that we will be able to share our opinions about a book in a way that engages our reader. I'll know I have it when I can create a professional book review to evaluate the non-fiction text I've chosen.
We will discuss Earth's resources so that we can understand how people use resources to meet their needs. I'll know I have it when I can read and answer questions about the different types of resources in my community and in our country, and how these resources affect agriculture and industry.
We will analyze word problems involving fractions so that we can determine what the problem is asking us to do. I'll know I have it when I can correctly solve problems involving fractions.
