This is a 3 week unit plan for 3rd grade on the thinking strategy, monitor comprehension, also known as monitoring for meaning. It includes lesson 1 from the Comprehension Toolkit, by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis, which is also available on the website I included. Lesson 2 and 3 would have to be purchased and cannot be posted due to copyright issues. Additional lessons are also attached and can be found on the WRSD website that I included. Assessments are also not included due to copyright laws. Aligned to Common Core State Standard: RL.3.10
These worksheets are based on a list found in the Dfes guide for spellings that should be known in KS3. This is just a start. Please give me feedback if you would like the whole list done like this for pupils who are still on level 3. I used these in a PRU that I worked in and the pupils enjoyed them (mostly boys hence the footballer pics!)
