This is the first unit in a comprehensive ELA curriculum that will systematically address the third grade Common Core State Standards for Reading and Language Arts. In my store, Teacher 3 for Kids, I will continue to add units so that you can plan an entire year utilizing books that are easily acquired. I have detailed a plan that can work in any classroom allowing you to add your own personal touch. The activities and assessments are all included. If you are like me, working without current text books, you may also enjoy having a complete document that addresses all of the standards. I will continue to add units to my store until the entire year is covered. I hope this first unit meets your needs.
