THERE IS A BUNDLE FOR UNITS 1- 5. IF YOU LIKE THIS, YOU CAN SAVE MONEY BY PURCHASING THE WHOLE BUNDLE in my store. These are $4.99 a piece, so you would spend $115 on them, the bundle is for $80, but please try 1.1 first to be sure. Please read below for description.
This Unit 1, Week 1, Wonders pack (3rd Grade) comes with a weekly power point to keep you on track and have something nice to guide you through the lessons and introduce the skills. NOTE: I did not include spelling and grammar because I keep those separate, so that will not be mentioned in this pack. This is based off of a 6 day cycle (day 1-5 teach) day 6 test. I did include the daily edit in the slides. I did this power point because I hate teaching out of the book and I like to have some colorful slides to follow to get me started and keep me on track. I do not have to go into the manual other than for the stories. You will notice the slides have numbers in the bottom right corner that correspond to what day we are on. Also included is a study guide that I send home to parents to give them an idea of the skills. I attach this guide to the selection test that can be found on Wonders online and send that home for hw. They do these at home and I sometimes offer a couple extra points on the test. With this package, you will also see "board vocab" which is a word doc of the vocab words. I have my students hand write them into their vocab journals (not included) and since I am not crazy about the Wonders manual's definitions, I make my own. There is also a context clue practice page I made, because I don't feel like there is enough test practice in Wonders. Also, there is aa research and inquiry folder should you choose to do it my way. Many times I will do the research for them and allow them to choose one to demonstrate. This saves time and we do not have many computers. This week I found several Aeop's fables. There is a slide on the power point showing how we do this, and a premade paper should you choose to follow my research and inquiry. I think it is easier. If so, you can choose to follow the Wonders manual for your own research and inquiry. Note, you may do things a bit different or see me refer to things you do not have. I also use the Wonders practice book, and other TPT things I have bought that I cannot include with this. Feel free to make changes to this pp and make it your own. It may not match up to exactly how you do things, but I think it is a nice frame. :)
