Welcome to Mrs. Holland’s 3rd Grade Classroom
I teach Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies. I am looking forward to a great year!
Second Six Weeks
ELA—This unit bundles student expectations that address the literary form and elements of literary nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Genre study connects reading and writing to allow students to become better writers and strategic readers who approach text meaningfully and purposefully, while optimizing understanding and communication. Students are immersed in the structure of literary works to comprehend text they read and communicate authentically about their reading and within their writing. Poetry, drama, biography, and autobiography provide the avenues for students to learn how to make inferences, draw conclusions, summarize, analyze characters, and provide textual evidence during their reading experiences. Students continue to examine teacher-selected and self-selected literature and media based on individual interest and abilities providing opportunities to make important personal and world connections within and across different contexts.
Social Studies— In Social Studies we’ll be using Social Studies Weekly-famous Americans, good citizens, government, communities and education, and communities- civic virtue and engagement and how communities thrive when citizens participate.
