ELA: Reading and Writing
There are many different parts of "reading." Each part of reading has a different goal in the 3rd Grade.
Phonics - upon entering 3rd grade students should start to be able to decode multi-syllable words. We will continue to work on this skill during the year.
Fluency - by the end of the year students should be able to read 100 words per minute.
Comprehension - by the end of the year students should have their Lexile score in the range between 520 and 820.
During writing this year we will be discussing how to write persuasive, informational, and narrative writing pieces.
August - October: We will be working on persuasive/opinion pieces.
October - December: We will be working on report writing pieces.
January - March: We will be working on compare and contrast informational pieces.
March - May: We will be working on narrative writing pieces.
