Using key vocabulary words to comprehend what we read is an important part of the third grade curriculum. Today, in small groups, we reviewed our vocabulary using a PowerPoint to guide the lesson. One of our vocabulary words is banquet. The students defined the word, composed a sentence using the word, and discussed how the word relates to our story. We discussed what foods we would like to eat if we attended a Chinese banquet just as the villagers and monks did in Stone Soup.
A’ravyn Stowes said that she would like these foods at the banquet:
- Fortune Cookies
- Egg Drop Soup
A’ravyn’s sentence for banquet was: They had a banquet that everyone enjoyed.
Good job A’ravyn!
