Reading

Writing

During WRITING WORKSHOP we have worked on non-fiction writing. If you think about it, most of the reading and writing that you and I do is nonfiction.  In almost every subject area of school your child will be asked to write nonfiction.  In the upcoming years your child will be assessed on state and national reading tests, history tests, science tests and college entrance exams based on his or her abilities to write nonfiction. 
Our current unit is important for all of these reasons, but most of all, it is important because children are being given the chance to teach each other what they know - these third graders have become the experts!  You should see how tall these children sit when they become the teachers, instructing others about babysitting, organizing, soccer rules, dogs, bunnies, legos, and art!  
This week we will finish publishing and share our work!
