In Shared Reading this week, our focus skill has been Fact and Opinion. Third graders should already know the difference right? Well, my benchmark scores didn't say so.
So, I typed up different clues that can help us determine the difference in fact and opinion. Then I put them in a paper bag and my kiddos drew out the different clues.
The students used this foldable to take notes.
I bought this cute dinosaur clipart from KPM Doodles and I used it to create some Fact and Opinion Practice
Isn't it so cute?
Oh and guess what? You can download all of this for free!
It's at my TPT Store and TN Shop! Let me know what you think and if you can use it with your kiddos!
My kiddos definitely understand the difference between fact and opinion now, well at least I hope so!
On another note, I really needed something cute on my walls for Conferences next week. It needed to have some sort of educational value since we are so close to the test. So we made symmetrical butterflies.
I love how different they all look!
Eazy Peazy to make.
1. Fold a large piece of white construction paper in half, cut out the outline of the butterfly half.
2. We used squeeze bottles to drop paint dots or draw lines on the butterfly half.
3. Fold it in half to spread the paint.
4. After it dries add a construction paper body, pipe cleaner antennas and googly eyes.
I've even shared the sign that I made for the display on Google Docs. Click here to download!
