This post is all about our new reading series. Does anyone use Wonders by McGraw-Hill? Beginning january writing activities for 3rd grade new series in reading or math makes for an exhausting school year, doesn't it?
I'm finally beginning to get into a routine with this series and feeling comfortable with it.
This quote can be found on the McGraw Hill website: Combining research-based instruction with new tools to meet today's challenges, every component and every lesson is designed for effective and efficient CCSS instruction.
The student books, teacher books, and all resources can be found online. Students can even access their books and games that go along with what we are studying by going online to their very own account at home.
The best part about most of the leveled readers is that the stories and content are the same for EACH level. My students have no idea that their leveled readers differ from another groups leveled readers.
Many of them fit well with our social studies and science curriculum. The rigor is also very high. And of course with every series there are some drawbacks: Since the questions are unlike anything most of our students have experienced, we spent a lot of time modeling and working through the questions together.
This has paid off tremendously as students are now performing well on these tests. At first, many of us felt panic and stress with trying to fit in everything that was given for each day.
Many of us did slow down a bit and spent 10 days on a unit rather than 5. We have begun to get through the material more quickly as our students are becoming more used to expectations and the skills.
Vocabulary Notebook I wanted a place for students to be able to keep their vocabulary words that they have learned throughout the year. So the students created a vocabulary notebook. Each week when new vocabulary is introduced, students complete the vocabulary fold its with the definition "in their own words", a picture that makes them think of this word, and a sentence using this word.
This is definitely something I want to do each year. It took some time at the beginning of the year for my 3rd graders to assemble these notebooks, but it has been well worth it. Students are also in such a great routine now that writing in their vocabulary fold-its and placing in their notebooks goes rather quickly.
I am generally able to get through everything in Day 1 along with these notebooks during our ELA time. If you are interested, below is a link and photo to my vocabulary notebooks. It does not include the fold-its vocabulary words. These are in my Wonders Mega Packs. V ocabulary Notebook for Bigger Kids 2.
Interactive Reading Notebooks I also use interactive reading notebooks with this reading series. The fold-its that you see inside the interactive reader's notebooks can be found in my Wonders Megapacks that I created to use with each week.
