Reading & Writing Workshop Units
In third grade students experience a workshop model for both reading and writing. Mini-lessons will occur everyday on a strategy or skill. Then, students are given time to independently read or write, teacher-student conferences take place and sharing what we've learned to the whole class, small group or a partner transpires. The units covered for reading this year will be: Building a Reading Life, Character Studies, Mystery Book Clubs, Reading to Learn and Research. Our writing units are: Personal Narrative, Letter Writing, Personal Essay, Realistic Fiction, and Non-fiction with Research.
