In this section you will find information and resources to assist your child in his/her literacy development. As a district, we use the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Units of Study to support student literacy. In addition to the units of study listed below, the third grade team incorporates various best practices to ensure a balanced literacy approach.
Reading Units of Study: Building a Reading Life, Reading to Learn: Grasping Main Ideas and Text Structures, and Character Studies, Research Clubs: Elephants, Penguins, and Frogs, Oh My!
Writing Units of Study: Crafting True Stories, The Art of Information Writing, Changing the World: Persuasive Speeches, Petitions, and Editorials, and Once Upon a Time: Adapting and Writing Fairy Tales
Throughout the year I will add parent resources under this section.
