Basic vocabulary for 3rd graders

Hi everyone!
3rd graders are learning the English alphabet. Among different activities I want to show you some poems they wrote playing with their names. The presentation below show you a summary of them because they worked individually and thought about a thing they liked. I tried to copy what they described.


Peppa Pig and the stars

1stA group has a new name: "The Stars"
Children and me have been talking about them. Children were astonished about what a star is (if you want more information, look at 1st group page on your left of the screen)
Fortunately we found this short movie about Peppa Pig and we enjoyed a lot. Thanks Peppa for being so cute!

Why do some leaves change their color in Autumn?

Every Autumn in all the forests of the world, there is a miraculous change in the color of the leaves. They turn from green into brilliant shades of yellow, orange, red, and gold. Sometimes you can see several shades on the same leaf. But why are these color changes happening, and what is going on in the plant?
Read this explanation and you will understand!
Plants make their own food. They take water from the ground through their roots. They take a gas called carbon dioxide from the air. They turn water and carbon dioxide into food using sunlight and something called chlorophyll. This one is green. It gives leaves their green color.

Winter days are short and dry. Many plants stop making food in Autumn. Then, the chlorophyll goes away. Then we can see different colours as orange, yellow, red, gold and also brown. When they are brown, it comes from wastes left in the leaves.
