This week the students focused on "the heart of their stories" and the drafting stage of the Writing Process. To help the students create a framework for their stories, the students have chosen and reflected on a quotation from the person they are researching and writing about. Then the third graders used a template to start writing their story. We will continue to come back to the person's quotation to ensure the students' stories are getting to the "heart of the matter."
Ask your child about what he/she has learned about their inspiring person.
