Third Grade with Ms. Roseman

Third grade has been very busy!! Recently we learned about prepositions and prepositional phrases in our reading series. We made detailed maps and drove a play car through our map. We then wrote detailed stories about where we were going. In conclusion, we highlighted all of the prepositions we used in our stories. Check out our stories and maps on the bulletin board outside the classroom!
