Today I'm featuring a third grade teacher, Jessie Harsh. I was in her room this week for her observation and while I was there I snapped some pictures. Take a look at third grade small group.
The story for the week: Dear Juno
The students picked a character from the story and drew a picture and listed the traits of that character inside the book.
Each student that rotated to her small group table read and discussed a book. The books chosen for each group was differentiated for their level.
A little about early finishers...
The books on the board are military service books for students to read when finished with their work. Some students worked on research on the computer.
The teacher's husband served 13 years in The United States Marine Corp, Staff Sgt John Harsh. He talked to the class this week about serving our country. The students had lots of questions. It was so great having Sgt Harsh on campus and spending time with our third grade students.
