My Project

Writing can be quite the challenge in third grade. Students are on various different levels with their reading abilities and this flows straight through into their writing skills.

I have included many fun, educational language arts resources such as "Roll a Story" dice, "Sentence Dominoes" and "Build Sentences Tiles", that will be used as centers to encourage independent narrative writing.

Students will be able to work in pairs or independently using puzzle tables, to create a wide array of stories. By adding a variety of centers, I hope to keep their enthusiasm high when it comes to writing.

Thank you for all that you do for teachers.

This project will reach 43 students.
