Level 3

Recommended for Grades 3 - 4

Students will continue the methodology and system where writing through key word outlining and note taking will be the focus. Weekly vocabulary and foundational grammar rules will be used to solidify the meaning of the written sentence’s structure and style. This level will be a guided practice in helping the students “think” then “write”. The elements of structure and style are added from the system to continue to build confidence and competence in writing. Grammar rule teaching builds from level one and vocabulary levels increase. Students will be writing every week. Source texts will vary in topic; vocabulary and reading strategies will be taught as applicable and appropriate.
