3rd Grade Enrichment & Engagement (Updated 3/17)



Third Grade Enrichment & Engagement

Good Evening Families,

We just wanted to take a moment to reach out to you during our district’s closing.  The third grade team has put together a collection of materials that focuses on review, reinforcement and enrichment instruction. Below are a handful of possible suggestions that you can utilize in an effort to engage your children while they are at home. While we do understand that there may be restrictions that prevent them from doing everything listed below, we do encourage them to complete whatever can be done.  Lastly, we did want to take the opportunity to notify you of our postponement of the Italian festivals scheduled for April 1st. We will meet as a third grade team when we reconvene school to discuss other possible ventures to share our learning with all of you. If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance in any way please do not hesitate to reach out.

 

All the best,

Meghan Craft

Content (Italy)

During the past few weeks the students have been exploring the different aspects of Italian culture.  Below are a few topics that your child can research to learn more. If so desired they can journal their findings.  

  • Family Life
  • Cuisine
  • Landmarks
  • Currency
  • Religion
  • Art & Architecture 
  • Holidays

 

Reading

Opportunities for continued reading enrichment are endless. Recently students have been focusing on character development within fiction books. Utilizing this time to explore books would be ideal. Below you will find a PDF that details an assortment of fun book report activities that students can engage themselves in. Once school resumes we will dedicate time to allow students to share their book report creations. In addition, students have access to Raz-Kids, Epic!, and ReadWorks where they can read short books (fiction and nonfiction) and then answer corresponding comprehension questions. Some students will have this log-in information in the front cover of their planners. For those students who do not, their teacher will forward that information to parents via email and/or ClassDojo/Remind upon request.
