All About Me!:
The third graders were very busy these past few months. Not only did they focus on others while showing kindness, they focused on themselves when introduced to text features in non-fiction books and articles. They learned that text features are a great way to learn more about a topic. The students created a text feature project called "Non-Fiction Text Features - All about Me." They designed maps, diagrams, illustrations, a glossary, and a timeline to make a foldable all about themselves! ...

Being the "I" in Kind:
Our 3rd graders here at Tully have been putting their P2 skills to the test! They have been practicing doing random acts of kindness for others, in and out of school, without expecting anything in return.
