New Ontario 2023 Language Curriculum – Foundations of Language Strand. This resource covers all expectations and learning goals in the Grade 3, 2023 Ontario Language Curriculum – Foundations of Language Strand.

 There are 382 activity sheets that align perfectly to cover all expectations in the NEW Ontario 2023 Language Curriculum. Included are 30 weeks of activities that cover the curriculum strategically, allowing teachers to use spiral teaching to ensure they are covering the entire curriculum.

 With the focus of the new curriculum on explicit teaching of vocabulary (tier 2 words) and Science of Teaching methods, we have created 30 word lists for students to study. Your students will work on different consonant clusters and vowel teams each week, as well as suffixes and prefixes.

 Included in this unit are the overall expectations:

B1: Oral and Non-Verbal Communication – over 10 activities/assignments to cover all specific expectations

 B2: Language Foundations for Reading and Writing – included in the weekly activities, students will perform word work to improve their spelling, reading strategies, fluency, and vocabulary.

 B3: Language Conventions for Reading and Writing – included in the weekly activities, students will learn about parts of speech, grammar, capitalization and punctuation.

 We have also covered Strand A in Language - Literacy Connections and Applications. We have included curriculum connections for all our activities, so you can see exactly what you will be covering by completing each activity. We know this will help when writing report cards!

 In addition, we have included a full-year long range plan that outlines what concepts from the curriculum you will be teaching each week, and what prefixes/suffixes/letter blends will be covered.
