IMG_6069While Mr. Brace is working with my regular 3rd grade group, I am lucky enough to work with a different 3rd grade group and we are having a lot of fun!  One of the things that this group needs it to work on main idea, author’s message, and in-depth comprehension strategies.

This week we read a book called Good Friends and my 3rd graders had to locate evidence of how Froggy and Duck were good friends to each other, write it on a post it note, and put it on the appropriate character.  Students had to put the page number and the evidence they found.

From there, students were asked to write about a good friends they have in their life and provide details/evidence of how they are a good friend.
