RBE Library 3rd Grade STAAR Special


This week at the RBE Library, we are preparing for the STAAR test. Since April is Poetry Month, and there is poetry on the STAAR test, I thought I would offer a STAAR Special to our 3rd grade teachers.

The teachers brought in their students and we examined and analyzed a poem called “Fishing for Compliments” by Colin McNaughton from the book Wish You Were Here (And I Wasn’t): A Book of Poems and Pictures for Globe Trotters.

Our students and I read the poem together and then discussed what we thought the poem was about. Then we answered 4  STAAR style questions about the poem. I put the questions in the below Google Presentation.

We also had a lot of poetry books on display and encouraged our readers to check out some poetry for pleasure reading! Plus, we let everyone without overdue books check out 4 books!
