May 2021 in 3rd Grade ELA and Religion
Reading- Our current topic in reading is learning about author's purpose. We are learning that authors either write to persuade or convince the reader of something, inform the reader in order to teach them something or to entertain the reader by telling an enjoyable story. We are working on how to identify the author's purpose in various texts.
Writing- In writing, we are working on an imaginative narrative. In this piece, students are writing a fantasy story by using their imaginations. Students are encouraged to use the story elements of characters, setting, problem, solution and plot in their pieces.
ELA/ Grammar- We are currently talking about subject verb agreement.
Religion in 3A- We are currently working on Chapter 10, which teaches all about the different parts of the Mass.
