Use the IPG to guide your discussion(s) when planning as a team.

Consider the following:
  • Continuing threads (TEKS) are listed along the right hand margin for Guided Reading, Writing Workshop and Working with Words. How will we spiral in the continuing threads?
  • What do we know about the TEKS?
  • What are the key learning opportunities for our students?
  • How will teach and assess at the same level of rigor?
  • What questions do we still have?

The Literacy Framework gives students opportunities to transfer & apply what they are learning

3rd Grade Instructional Planning Guide (IPG) is located on the NEISD Intranet.
