This “Refrigerator Copy” is a quick reference for students and parents. It can be sent home weekly for students to place on the “refrigerator” for reinforcement of skills being covered in class. Each page includes the Question of the Week, Spelling Words, Challenge Spelling Words, Amazing Words, and Selection/Tested Vocabulary Words. In addition, a comprehension skill and strategy are featured. In third grade this refers to the following:
“ Skill is the destination, Strategy is the journey.”
For example, in Unit 1 Week 1 the comprehension skill is identifying Literary Elements and in order to accomplish this students must use the comprehension strategy of using their Background Knowledge.
Includes "Refrigerator Copy" Handouts of skills from Common Core Aligned 2013 Reading Street Edition Third Grade - Units 1-6. In addition, I have included a parent letter with an explanation for the "Refrigerator Copy".
