In writing we are beginning the year with narratives.
We will write realistic fiction stories, followed by personal narratives. Students will learn the tips and tricks of strong writers as they practice these genres.
If you're looking for realistic stories to read to give your third graders ideas for Writer's Workshop, check out these books!
