Third Grade Novel Studies
During the year, we will be completing four different novel studies (one per quarter). We encourage all students to have their own copies of each of the novels. This inspires note taking and text marking, which are huge parts of our Florida Standards. Feel free to purchase one book at a time, or all four at once. Students will keep the books in class.
The names of the novels are:
Sarah Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan*
Beacause of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davis
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
*Please plan to have a copy of Sarah Plain and Tall in class by Friday, August 16th, at the latest.
During the school year, our class Edmodo page will be a fun, interactive place for students and parents to stay up to date on daily classroom events. During the first week of school, students (and parents!) will have access to our class Edmodo page with a user name and password. Throughout the year, we will practice with different Edmodo tools in order for students to become experts using this great piece of classroom technology
