Third Grade Interview
Old 08-27-2007, 04:59 PM

At the end of third grade, I have my students interview their parents or grandparents about their third grade experience. We create the questions together, I type them, and then they interview their parents over several nights. Eventually, it becomes a three to four paragraph end-of-year writing for their writing folder.

I am attaching the questions from last year.

Maybe your family book could start small and build over the course of the year...small interviews now...larger ones in the future...vary the topics. Each child could make a family book, but whenever each child interviews a family member, you could also make a class book about that particular interview.

Start with
--interview a sibling about the best time they have ever had with your family.
--interview your mom about the best family vacation she has ever taken.
--interview your dad about his job.
--interview your grandmother/aunt about her childhood friends.

I hope this helps.
