3rd Grade Online Learning

Hello 3rd Graders and welcome to our class page! I am going to use this to keep all of our links together while we are learning from home. Hopefully this will help to make sure we are keeping track of the work.
This is everything that Ms. Short & myself have been putting together so far. You don't have to work on it everyday, but you MUST do it in order. Each day builds on the day before, so you may get confused if you do it out of order.

Day 11
1. Example of Compare and Contrast Writing from Friday.
In Grandfather's Journey by Allen Say, Grandfather and the narrator are alike. For example, they both leave Japan and come to love California. They are also similar because they both miss one country when they are in the other.
On the other hand, the two characters are different because Grandfather is not able to return to California, but the narrator travels between the countries when he gets too homesick. Another difference is that Grandfather tells his story to his grandson, while the narrator tells his story and Grandfather’s story to the readers.
2. Notice and Wonder chart with the cover of the book. This book is also written by Allen Say.
What similarities and differences do you notice between this illustration and the illustrations in “Grandfather’s Journey?”
