Introduction to 3rd Grade


Students in grade 3 strengthen their foundational and critical reading and writing skills to proficiently read grade-appropriate complex literature and informational text. Instruction focuses on asking and answering explicit and inferential questions, using text evidence, summarizing, and engaging in collaborative conversation. Students analyze texts for literary elements, author’s purpose, and structure. Students continue to practice the writing process by writing narrative (grade level focus mode), informative, and opinion pieces incorporating grade level grammar concepts. Students expand their personal and academic vocabulary they can use in their writing and speaking and students develop stamina for longer periods of reading and writing.
