A Note From Your Third Grade Teachers
Third Grade Connections
December 8th, 2016
Dear Third  Grade Families,

We are looking forward to the Native American Cultural Celebration Day this Friday, December 9th. On this day, students will participate in two  Special Cultural literacy workshops with Peopleologie:  Native  California Workshop in the morning and Mud, Dirt, Sand and Clay in the afternoon.  

We hope to see you at the Family potluck and student share at  10:30 - 11:45 a.m. This is where the third graders will share their discoveries and learnings on an aspect of the Ohlone peoples life and enjoy some traditional family food. Please RSVP to Mrs. Guevara with what food you are planning to share.

Sincerely, 

Your Third  Grade Team
Kathe Bybee and Jen Guevara

  • What is a topic sentence and supporting details?
