UNWRAP this reading strategy

We are following in the wonderful footsteps of 4th and 5th grade and “UNWRAP”ping a new strategy for reading passages! I am very excited about teaching the third graders how to unwrap the gift of a story! Here is the chart we made today. Each student will be bringing home a copy of this chart to help unwrap any new passage, including homework!

Learning Goals Feb. 13-17

This week the kiddos will start learning about Tall Tales (characteristics of). They will also write their own tale with a partner.

Reading HW: comes home Monday

New Vocabulary: comes home Monday

Spelling test: Thursday (practice) and Friday (make-up)

MATH Common Assessment: Wednesday

READING Common Assessment: Thursday

Learning Goals for Jan. 30-Feb. 3

Reading: This week we are learning about fables. A fable teaches a lesson or a moral and usually animals are the main characters. A well known example is the Ant and the Grasshopper.

Writing: Students are continuing the writing process on their own fairy tale.
