Third graders completed their ELA Module 1 Performance Task this week! Students synthesized their thinking and writing about their own personal reading challenges and possible strategies to overcome those challenges by creating an eye-catching bookmark listing the strategies. Students will keep their bookmarks in their books at school as a reminder. Great work, Stars!
