We study a lot in 3rd grade writing!
We will begin the year by studying the different parts of speech. We will work on writing simple and complex sentences. We want students to expand their sentences to be more than "I watched a movie."
As the year goes on, students will work on writing many different pieces. We will focus on personal narratives (stories about something that actually happened to them). We will also write friendly letters, poems, fictional narratives, reports, and many more!
Students will be expected to edit their own papers later in the year. They will need to make sure their papers are organized, flow smoothly, are interesting, have strong word choices, and have little grammatical errors.
