Reading and Writing are the heart and soul of teaching literacy. Children need to be taught explicit strategies in order to develop and refine their writing skills in order to support content area writing. This Unit of Study will me foster higher level thinking with 3rd grade students as well as teach them strategies for content area writing. 3rd grade is a critical year for assessments and writing plays a big part of those assessments. I want to provide my students the very best writing environment where they develop a LOVE of writing!! This unit of study will be a critical guide for me to use in developing my mini lessons and preparing my students to be life long writers.

Goal

Reading and Writing are the heart and soul of teaching literacy. Children need to be taught explicit strategies in order to develop and refine their writing skills in order to support content area writing. This Unit of Study will me foster higher level thinking with 3rd grade students as well as teach them strategies for content area writing. 3rd grade is a critical year for assessments and writing plays a big part of those assessments. I want to provide my students the very best writing environment where they develop a LOVE of writing!! This unit of study will be a critical guide for me to use in developing my mini lessons and preparing my students to be life long writers.  

 

What will be done with my students

I will use these units of study to develop my writing teaching points along with the district curriculum. Our district uses Lucy Calkins as a mentor for developing writing curriculum and I want to use the very best when planning my lessons. As a result, my goal is to increase motivation, enthusiasm, and a love for writing. I want my 3rd grade students to feel confident and ready for FSA Writing Assessments as well as becoming life long writers. 

 

Benefits to my students

These books will not only benefit myself as an educator, but other 3rd grade teachers on my team. In becoming a more confident and skilled writing teacher, my students will benefit by preforming at a high level on all writing assessments and assignments. This is a tool for me to learn and grow from as well as my students.  

 

Describe the Students

I have 18-20 students with 3 ESE students, 1 ESOL, 5 gifted students, and a variety of academic levels in between. All students would benefit from me using this unit of study to plan my lessons
