Third Grade Reading

This year, students will do a combination of Whole Group Reading, Small Group Reading, and Independent Reading.

WHOLE GROUP READING: Students will listen to, discuss, and respond in writing to questions based on the Common Core.

Our first book will be The Stories Julian Tells by Ann Cameron.  We will focus on responding in writing.

Students have been placed in three groups.  Here are the first books:

INDEPENDENT READING:  Students will be reading “just right” books that they choose themselves.  These books should be interesting to them and at an appropriate reading level.  They’ll check in frequently and be encouraged to use comprehension strategies that we are working on.  Finally, they’ll respond in writing using the BOOK BUZZ format.
