On-Demand End of Unit 3 Assessment and Freaky Frog Trading Card Celebration

Review Part A of Work Time carefully; be clear with students that for this on-demand assessment, they are writing about a DIFFERENT category from the matrix than the one they focused on for the back side of their trading card. Be sure to invite a real audience (other students in the class, students from another class, families, etc.) for the trading card share. Depending on the audience, the share may happen within this lesson or within another block of time. Note, although students read their trading cards aloud, this does not formally address a fluency CCLS, since students' own writing is unlikely to be at the third-grade reading level. Review the Model Paragraph for On-Demand Assessment for an idea of what to expect from student work. A Research-Based Narrative Rubric is provided in the supporting materials of this lesson.
