This unit is based on the Common Core Curriculum Maps from Commoncore.org. The Maps suggest the focus standards, literary text, informational texts, poems, art and some of the activities. Taking these suggestions I created the specific lessons/activities included in this packet.
This packet is not a day-by-day set of lesson plans, Instead, it is a collection of activities that gives you the flexibility to plan instructional weeks to fit your schedule and student needs. It probably isn't possible to complete all the activities in this packet in a 3-week time frame. You're in charge! Use what you like and make the unit your own.
Activities for reading, language, poetry and writing are included for these third grade standards: RL.1, RL.3, Rl.4, RL.5, RL.6, Rl.9, RL.10, RI.2, RI.6, RI.9, W.3.a, W.3.b, W.3.c, W.3.d, W.4, W.5, W.10, SL.1.a, SL.1.c, SL.1.d, SL.2, L.1.d, L.1.e, L.2.c, L.2.g, L.3.a, L.5.c
