In third grade we teach reading in a variety of ways. Our literacy block consists of the following components:
- Shared Reading (Units of Study): During this time, all students are exposed to third grade level text as they work on reading, writing, and speaking and listening skills aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
- Guided Reading: Students are placed in small groups based on their individual reading levels and needs. I will be reinforcing skills taught during shared reading as I meet with small groups.
- Literacy Stations: While I am meeting with small reading groups, other students will be engaged in literacy stations centered around reading, writing, and word work.
