Grade Three

download (1)This page is a work in progress.  :) 

This is a rough outline that I created to try to follow for the 2017/2018 school year.  I wanted to be sure that I correctly and thoroughly addressed the Common Core State Standards for  Reading Foundational Skills, Reading Literature, and Reading Informational Texts.  All of the standards are represented here, and many repeat.  This guide will assist me with my Student and Teacher Assistance Team meetings, it can help me better track progress of my students, and parents can review each month’s learning or prepare their child for the next month.  This may not follow exactly what the classroom teacher is doing at these exact times ~ I pull students from many different classrooms together ~ but that’s okay.  All standards must be covered,  and learning does not occur in a vacuum ~ children bring in different experiences and make different connections all of the time!  :)

My grade 3 goal is to have my students read books 1-28 in Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House series, while incorporating the Common Core State Standards.  Reading books in a series corresponds to standard RL3.9:  Compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters (e.g., in books from a series).  

Everyone has heard the proverb “practice makes perfect.”  In learning to read it is true that reading practice – just reading – is a powerful contributor to the development of accurate, fluent, high-comprehension reading (Allington, 2009).  By having a Mary Pope Osborne readathon, students will be learning factual information while becoming very comfortable with the author’s writing style.  They will feel a huge sense of accomplishment and confidence reading 28 chapter books.  I will be borrowing books from the Minuteman Library Network to have a book for each student.

WHY AM I GOING TO TRY A SERIES YEAR with GRADE 3?  

Taken from Better Reading:

Familiarity and ease of choice:  Reading ‘the next book’ in a series reduces the angst of choosing and the anxiety of trying something new – it’s reassuring for them to know what to expect in a book and feel confident they’ll like it.

Accomplishment and reinforcement: Kids feel a real sense of achievement when they finish one book, and then two, and then three in a series. And each time they finish another, they have more confidence that they can read and are readers. Studies show that reading more books and reading regularly boosts literacy skills and promotes academic achievement and emotional development. That’s partly why school programs and projects like the state Premiers’ Reading Challenges focus on the quantity of books read.

Reading momentum: While it’s not unusual for kids’ enthusiasm for reading to wane at various times, it’s great to be able to keep them reading by offering ‘more’ of what they’ve loved. It’s much trickier to have to rekindle their enthusiasm than to maintain it. And regular, ongoing reading helps kids retain the literacy skills they’ve built.

We know that:

  • Reading volume should be a central feature of any intervention to improve reading comprehension (p. 53).  
  • 90 minutes of DAILY in school reading, ACTUALLY READING, is the MINIMUM recommendation (p. 54) with 30-45 minutes of daily writing.  
  • There is a strong link between comprehension and composing (p. 62).
  • Engagement in reading has been found to be the most powerful instructional activity for fostering reading growth. Teachers should not stretch one book out over 6 weeks with lots of activities (p. 58). Assign MORE READING instead! 
  • Test performance is determined by reading ability and general world knowledge ~ so encourage LOTS of reading at the child’s successful level ~ which isn’t necessarily his/her grade level (p. 98). The Magic Tree House series is Level M, which is the June of grade 2 benchmark.
