These newsletters are differentiated based on spelling lists (approaching, on level, or above). Each newsletter includes the theme, essential question, description of the genre, reading comprehension skill and strategy, spelling list with review and challenge words, and vocabulary skill/knowledge. This is a great resource for parents to help their child at home. Students can also use the spelling activities on the back to help prepare for spelling tests. Above Level spelling lists allow students to choose their own 2 challenge words for differentiation. I do not have newsletters for Units 4, 5, or 6 because I do not get to teaching those during the 3rd grade school year, so I hope the price reflects this ($1.00 per unit).
