Hello Third Grade Families,
The students are doing a great job with our first chapter book and Literacy Circles. Each student is in a small group. The groups begin each day by sharing their previous days literacy job and then they begin reading the next chapter. This part of the group time is with teacher guidance. The students then finish reading the chapter independently and work on the next job. With this in mind it is important for each student to read and complete their job daily. This enables everyone to share and learn from each other.
Don't forget to send in box tops this week. Third grade would love to win this contest.
Our study of Mind Growth continues. This week we learn about how the brain can grow and get stronger. I am hearing less and less of, "I can't do this." The students are encouraging each other and seem to have more grit when it comes to trying new things.
