3rd Grade Language Arts Online-Full Year
3rd Grade Language Arts provides a well-balanced approach to literacy that connects reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and spelling into one integrated program. Dedicated time for keyboarding practice is also included. The course comprises 14 units, including 2 assessment units. Each unit contains workshops that have one major focus (reading, writing, or word study) for instruction and reinforcement of big ideas. In reading workshops, students read independently both classic and contemporary works in different genres and formats—fiction, poetry, drama, nonfiction, and magazines—before exploring each text through various activities.
In writing workshops, students study writing models and then use the writing process to write a variety of compositions. They learn about grammar, usage, and mechanics and apply those skills as they revise and proofread their work. In word study workshops, students grow their vocabulary by learning the meanings of groups of conceptually related words. Students also learn to focus on spelling patterns that are necessary to be fluent, proficient readers, writers, and spellers.
