We now have guided reading groups going and students should  be reading from books on their  level.  We began A Taste of Blackberries  and the students are  working on  Character, Character traits, Setting, Theme and learning to use different Literacy Strategies such as Making Connection, Predict, Infer and Ask Questions while reading. 

We have started our work in our Reader's Notebooks with chapter summaries and DETERMINING IMPORTANT events. 
We are off to a great start!   We have introduced a few of of our Daily 5 activities, such as Word Work, Read to Someone,  and Writing.

Freckle Juice

We started our year with a delightful literature book, Freckle Juice.  It is a nice way to delve into a chapter book for third graders.  We also enjoyed our FABULOUS juice to ensure a FABULOUS year!!
