Storytown is the program selected to teach Language Arts. It includes reading comprehension strategies and skills, decoding, phonics, spelling, grammar and vocabulary development.
On Mondays a new unit introduces a new story/genre with new spelling words, vocabulary words, and reading skills. Third graders will recieve a copy of these words to bring home along with a homework packet containing skill sheets to reinforce the grammar and spelling lessons. You can also access spelling words from the links below.
On Fridays the homework packet is due. Also on Fridays third graders have their spelling test and a short reading assessment to monitor progress. Every fifth week (Lessons 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30) are review weeks. On those weeks third graders take more comprehensive reading tests.
More details will be provided in the weekly newletters. Check those every Monday!
