FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Mini Lessons for Grade 3 - Reading TEKS”
by Mark Lyons
Mini Lessons for Grade 3 - Reading - TEKS
This is a group of mini lessons introducing reading Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards adopted by the state of Texas in 2008.
Each mini lesson is designed to introduce a specific TEKS standard. Some of the standards have been broken down into several mini lessons due to the content of the standard.
English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS) are included in each mini lesson, if applicable. The reading TEKS mini lesson helps introduce the TEKS with classroom instruction for that particular ELPS standard and its student expectation.
All of the mini lessons follow a similar format. There is a title, a listing of the TEKS standard covered in the mini lesson, a list of needed materials, Instruction, Practice, and Wrap-Up. The materials consist of one or more Instruction Transparencies and one or more Student Practice sheets. Every so often a mini lesson will list additional materials needed for the lesson. These are materials already commonly found in a classroom such as six sided dice, an erasable transparency marker, and plastic or paper counters. The pages labeled as Instruction Transparencies will need to be run off onto an overhead transparency sheet. The pages labeled as Student Practice will need to be run off so each student has a copy.
Each mini lesson is designed to introduce a specific TEKS standard. Once the mini lesson has been conducted, you may visit it again as a review or as a reteach for those students struggling with the specific TEKS.
The mini lesson teacher plans include all that is needed for each lesson. You need only make the number of copies needed and gather any materials as specified in the lesson plans.
