This product includes a culminating writing task for each 3rd grade Journeys Reading story. These writing activities are Common Core aligned.
The product also includes a POW+TIDE or POW+TREE writing graphic organizer based on which type of writing (informative, opinion) the culminating task asks the students to do.
I have included text-dependent questions for each story in 2 versions for group or partner work.
These questions can be done in a variety of ways, but they are designed to lead students into the culminating task.
A GIST, SOAPSTone, and a Story Map Graphic Organizer are also
included, which I recommend completing before the
Please keep in mind Unit 1 writing only requires students to write from one text. Later units will ask students to write using 2 texts.
