We are using a combination of the Journeys Series, Ready NY materials, Interactive Read-Alouds with authentic texts, as well as some materials from the engageny.org learning modules. All of these materials are aligned with the common core standards.
- Our reading block will be 90 minutes, and will incorporate whole group mini-lessons, Centers with technology and extension activities, small group guided reading at students' instructional levels, independent practice, and lots of review!
- Our third grade topics will further develop concepts previously taught in second grade, as well as introduce many new concepts. These topics will include new spelling patterns, grammar skills, comprehension skills, vocabulary, creative & informational writing, and responding to literature using text-based evidence.
