A'ravyn looks over the vocabulary using PowerPoint.

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:

  • Rice
  • Noodles
  • Fortune Cookies
  • Egg Drop Soup

A’ravyn’s sentence for banquet was: They had a banquet that everyone enjoyed.

Good job A’ravyn!
