Today, in Mrs. Olson's 3rd grade, we began learning about the reading comprehension skill, drawing conclusions. Together we stepped into the role of detective and practiced drawing conclusions. We collected our information (clues) and used that information to draw a conclusion and successfully solve the case of the missing mascot!
