3rd Grade Reading

Reading/Writing Learning Plan 3/17-3/27


Students will continue to work on our unit of Advancements in Technology. While students may work at any pace you see fit and is feasible within your schedule, I have provided a guideline that can be used to complete work while gone.


Students should also be going onto Moby Max and reading daily for about 20 minutes.


I will be available by email if you have any questions regarding any of the assignments.  


Stay healthy!

Day

Purpose/Annotation

Materials

Tuesday 3/17

Purpose: Read From Telephone to Face Time. Identify the key details and then the main idea in each section 

Annotate! Underline the key ideas in each section.

Text- From Telephone to FaceTime

Chart-Identifying key ideas and determining main idea.

Wednesday 3/18

Engage Student Thinking: Instead of relying only on your own words and ideas, writers of informational texts will often incorporate direct quotations from historical figures, famous people, or experts on a particular topic. Today you will examine the role of these quotations in an informational text, and analyze how these quotations support specific points in an author’s writing.


Purpose: Reread From Telephone to Face Time.  Identify quotations and think about how they affect your experience as a reader, and your understanding of the topic? 


Annotate! Underline places where the author uses quotations.

Text- From Telephone to FaceTime

Chart- Analyzing Direct Quotations

Thursday

3/19

Word Study- Spelling Practice        VCe syllable pattern (spoke, telephone)


Purpose:  Scan the text and highlight words that have the VCe pattern.  Remind students that when they pronounce words that end with this syllable pattern, the first vowel is usually pronounced with a long vowel sound, while the e is silent. 

Text- From Telephone to FaceTime

 

Spelling Practice by Completing Sentence

Friday 3/20

Engage Student Thinking:

Remember that so far this year, you have encountered a number of different text and text features. In this lesson, you will analyze how a combination of different text and text features can support an author’s ideas and add to the reader’s (your) understanding of a topic.


Purpose: You should scan “From Telephone to FaceTime,” paying close attention to photographs, text headings, and time lines.  


Annotate! Draw lines connecting each text  feature to the part of the text it supports. You can also jot notes in the margins about how the text features support the author’s ideas.

Text- From Telephone to FaceTime

Monday 3/23

Engage Student Thinking: Remember that it can be interesting to read two texts on the same topic because different writers will focus on and include different words, ideas, and graphic features in their respective texts. Comparing two texts on the same topic deepens our understanding of the topic. It’s often good to get a second point of view.

 

Purpose: Skim the texts “Alexander Graham Bell: It Talks!” and “From telephone to FaceTime.” Use the chart to help compare both texts. 

Text- “From Telephone to FaceTime”  and “Alexander Graham Bell: It Talks!”

 

Comparing Two Text on the Same Topic Chart

Tuesday 3/24

Writing- Applying Cross Text Knowledge.


Write a paragraph in which you compare one characteristic from the chart you completed yesterday  (Comparing Two Text on the Same Topic). Students should provide at least two pieces of textual evidence to support their writing.

OT Tip of the week: 

Environment can be everything! Our students are used to completing school work in their classroom, but given the current situation how can you help the environment at home support completing school work? Finding a spot that will help your kiddo learn and engage in school work can be as unique as their fingerprints. As you find a routine for completing school work, here are some questions to ask as you pick the best spot for remote learning: 

  • Does your child work best in absolute silence or do they need some background noise? 
  • Can they be in front of a window or will that be too distracting to them?
  • Do they like to sit or do they work best while standing? 
  • Are they able to focus better first thing in the morning, afternoon or evening? 
  • Does your child need breaks between tasks or more breaks during one subject than others? 

Having materials nearby is important too! Make sure to have writing tools, crayons or devices charged and available and ready to use. Students who feel comfortable in sharing their workspace can send a picture to Ms. Rojas OT crojas@cps.edu to share on the Garvy website!

OT Tip of the Week

Sometimes you’ve gotta MOVE!! The human body simply isn’t made to stay still for extended periods of time. We’ve seen great benefits in the use of flexible seating in the classroom. Not only are students becoming more aware of their bodies and what works for them versus what doesn’t, they are also learning to advocate for what they need to learn. Movement breaks can be a brief walk around the block, doing a couple of laps up and down the stairs, some floor or wall push ups. A quick dance party can be a great break too, I know Go Noodle is a favorite of our Bulldogs! Others prefer breaks that are more focused on mindset such as deep breathing or meditating. Check out Ms. Rojas’ faculty page for more specific movement break ideas or feel free to reach out via email (crojas@cps.edu) if you’d like suggestions specific to your student.
