How can you cover a LOT of critical content in a LITTLE amount of time? This ELA morning work is a unique way to get your students warmed up in the morning that helps incorporate the 3rd Grade Language Standards, Grammar, Vocabulary Practice, and Reading Comprehension skills.
ELA morning work for the months of August - June.
The morning work is focused on ELA 3rd Grade Common Core Standards. Each day has a thematic structure to cover Language Standards, Grammar, as well as enhance Vocabulary and Comprehension skills.
Meaningful Monday: Monday is focused on making meaning. Tasks will focus on synonyms, antonyms, vocabulary words, and context clues. Some tasks may require students to make meaning in the text (inference, message, adages, proverbs, etc.) or build vocabulary skills.
Text Structure Tuesday: Tuesdays will have a paragraph that requires students to identify the text structure, signal words, and a question or two related to the main idea, author's perspective, or vocabulary.
Wordy Wednesday: Wednesday is all about working with words. Tasks include working spelling sorts, phonics activities, homophones, and other word work.
Throwback Thursday: Thursday is all about grammar usage and conventions.
Fluency Friday: Friday is dedicated to building fluency. In upcoming months, Fluency Friday may become Figurative Friday. These tasks include working with various types of figurative language including similes, metaphors, idioms, and more!
You asked, I answered. This resource is a result of multiple requests from 3rd grade teachers that have been using the 3rd Grade ELA Morning Work. These teachers wanted a way to assess the skills practiced throughout the week.
These weekly assessments are a companion for the 3rd Grade ELA Morning Work. The morning work is available in an ELA bundle. Click the link below to view the bundle.
The ELA morning work covers critical language, grammar, and comprehension skills over the year. The suggested way to use this resource is by reviewing the skills throughout the week with the morning work, and then giving the assessment on Friday for a weekly quiz grade.
Not only will this hold your students accountable, but this also serves as a gauge for students' learning. Plus, it's a consistent weekly quiz grade with a streamlined answer key to be easy on your teacher eyes!
