Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!
We are continuing to work hard at school!  The students are reading the story A Fine, Fine School.  We are discussing what makes Canyon Pointe a fine school, and completing "Book Chat" questions with our reading groups.  The students are working on the vocabulary from the story, and are enjoying practicing the words in fun ways.  We are continuing to practice story structure and identifying characters, setting, problem and solution. They are also summarizing and sequencing the events of the plot's main events.  The students will be answering comprehension questions and writing responses in complete sentence answers.  
For Social Studies we are continuing to learn about communities.  We have been discussing how there have been many Heroes in both Hurricane Harvey and 9/11.  We will be practicing a Readers' Theater on rules, and performing the play to another class in the upcoming future.  As always, continue to spend time discussing classroom and school expectations, and what it means to have GREAT EXPECTATIONS in our school. 
THANKS for sharing your kids with me, and as always THANKS for your support from home!!!
