Our 3rd Grade friends recently attended the Scrap-kins assembly led by the author of the Build-It Books, Brian Yanish. The children were inspired by his use of recycled materials to create innovative creatures. After the assembly, the children used recycled paper rolls in order to create their very own unique creatures.  
In writing, we’ve been focusing on how to write a well structured paragraph that include a topic sentence, 3 star ideas, at least 2 supporting details for each star idea, and a closing sentence. The 3rd Grade children then used their Scrap-kins creatures to write descriptive paragraphs on them. Take a look!
