This year, we will be reading novels. Some of the novels we will be reading are Third Grade Angels, Lemonade War, The Best Halloween Ever, The Candy Corn Contest, White House White Out and many more!
In my classroom, we use Daily 3, which includes more exposure to the weekly story. On the first day, the students pick a spot in the room to read the selection of the week to themselves. The following day each student finds a partner and they read to one another. This gives the students a great opportunity to practice their fluency and work together as a team, encouraging one another as they take turns reading. Then, different projects/assignments are given to help reinforce the vocabulary taught throughout the week. This may include dictionary skills, writing, etc.
