Like much of LearnZillion's offerings, the 3rd grade ELA module has short, step-by-step video lessons directly linked to a number of Common Core standards. Through the texts and writing prompts, kids learn reading and writing skills in six categories: reading literature; reading informational text; foundational reading skills; as well as opinion-based, informational, and narrative writing.

There's a lot more information here than in the Grade 2 section, including an in-depth exploration of foundational reading skills, like segmenting phonemes in multisyllabic words. Teachers may want to use these videos to further develop all of their students' reading skills, or just with kids who need extra help. Otherwise, the videos here are similar to those in other grades -- they can be used in similar ways: to introduce, supplement, or review reading and writing topics in class; for flipped-class learning with previews (or practice) at home; in small groups; or as individualized learning tools. Teachers will need to supplement the videos with assignments -- you can borrow directly from the videos or create on your own. You'll also want to set up some assessments to help evaluate how well kids understand the material.

Full Disclosure: LearnZillion and Common Sense Education share funders; however, those relationships do not impact Common Sense Education's editorial independence and this learning rating.
