October 13: UPDATES !!!!!

Writers and Readers Workshop:  We are working on personal narratives.  The students have learned four different ways to begin their stories (leads).  Students have also been placed in specific reading and spelling groups.

Science:  This week our 3rd graders began learning about Water and Climate.  We started our first investigation on how water is affected by different surfaces.

Starting next week, I will be posting the spelling words or grammar work for the week.  This month we will be getting ready to pick one of our narratives and stretch it out into a longer story.
