the 3rd grade

Using a picture from a story book to write words and sentences


The content aim

To study nouns by using a picture from a book. The pupils would make the texts themselves. They would start to understand the meaning of different words in a sentence.

They could explain what kind of a word a noun is.

Thinking aim

They would practice making a bank. They would use creativity to make texts for study purposes. They would use the material they have createded to make explanations.

They would reflect on their learning.


The pupils got worksheets to fill in. The tasks involved every time a question to give a challenge. Some times extra tasks were given. For example take three/four/five/six words from your list a use them in one sentence. The sentence describes the situation in the picture. 

Reflection on the series of the tasks

The mother tongue book was not used during these lessons. The book would have given the pupils the rules but creating and collecting the material by ourselves enabled the pupils to study the content by themselves.

It is important to find a good picture which gives enough details, is interesting and leaves questions in the air.

When the pupils are interested in the picture they will accept the challenges better.

The worksheets have tasks where the pupils plan and assess their work. They were also given tasks to give peer assessment.
