Third Grade Thoughts

Week of October 29-November 2

Reading

This week we're diving into fantasy! Guys from Space is a fantasy story about a young boy who encounters some space guys in his backyard. Ask your child to retell you the story of what happens when a spaceship with small space guys land in the boy's backyard. Discuss how his mother reacted and how you would react if you were the boy's parent in the story!
