Grade 3 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 16

Kids reading


As noted in the Performance Task description, students may create their illustrations using technology or in collaboration with a studio art teacher.

Once students have completed both their published paragraph and quality illustration, they should attach them on a piece of cardstock for the final bookmark. See Lesson 15 about using a photocopier to reduce students’ writing to fit the bookmark cardstock.

Vocabulary may need to be clarified for some students: bookmark, superhero, bring to life.
