Why did I make this resource?
This past year was my first year in 3rd grade. I teach departmentalized ELA and time seems to be in short supply. I used a spiral language review and a daily comprehension resource. I loved both of the resources, but I found it difficult to fit both in our warm-up daily. I also felt like I was lacking the language instruction from a writing aspect (which is where students need to learn to use it). So, I decided to create a resource that would allow me to review editing, language concepts, comprehension, and writing structure all at one time. More bang for your buck (or time)!
How will I use this resource?
I will be using this resource as a spiral language review through the context of writing. Each day we will be looking at different aspects of language and sentence structure. We will also look at writer’s craft and how to structure paragraphs for different genres of writing. I have also added in different aspects of our reading standards to bring in comprehension skills. Really the possibilities are endless!
I knew that I would not be able to create the whole year long bundle in one summer, so I have made this a building bundle. My bundle will be themed by the month (season, holidays, etc.). The unit for the upcoming month will be completed by the 15th of the previous month (i.e. September’s bundle will be completed by August 15th). I will re-upload the file so that the new month is included! All you have to do is download the file again! I will also be selling the units by themselves. However, I plan to get August-October completed this summer.
What should I expect from this bundle?
I will include all writing and literary genres (narrative, persuasive, informational, essays, letters, etc.). Each monthly unit will be themed with kid-friendly clip-art. I will scaffold this resource. By the 3rd 9-weeks unit (starting in January) I will take off the checklist from the side. I will include a set of slides that has a M-Th checklist to use as a reminder each day. Each unit will be quality work that will be completed on time!
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me! I hope you and your littles will enjoy using this unit!
Love, Amber Broach
