3rd and 4th Grade Fall ELA Activities



This 3rd and 4th Grade Fall ELA Activities pack is filled with ELA activities for 3rd and 4th graders. There are themed activities for each of the six Common Core Standards domains (RL, RI, L, SL, RF, and W). Your students will practice their ELA standards while incorporating the fall theme as well. This will take some of the stress off of your plate by providing you with standards-based and Common Core-aligned seasonal activities!
Each domain will have 3-4 activities or passages. The domains are Reading Literature, Reading Informational, Writing, Speaking and Listening, Language, and Foundational Skills. There will be a mix of hands-on partner, whole group, and independent activities.
