Our third grade students are excited to learn how to write in cursive, multiply and divide, read fiction and non-fiction and write stories using a topic sentence, juicy details and a concluding sentence. Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop allows for readers to be challenged at their reading level through small group work and individual conferencing. Our phonics program, Fundations, supports our reading program by providing daily systematic and explicit lessons that focus on word and sentence structure.
