My 3rd grade students are hardworking and eager to learn. We are working on developing a life long love of reading and writing. I focus on teaching students how to think and talk about what they read in deeper and more detailed ways. Most of our lessons are dedicated to reading, writing and talking about the meanings, lessons, and important ideas in texts. All of my students are encouraged to develop their own points of view about books they read, and to discuss their ideas about a text or characters. I stress the importance of series books in 3rd grade because they allow students to make connections between different books and talk about how certain characters develop. As 3rd graders explore a greater range of books and longer texts, they become more fluent readers and learn to read, define, and pronounce complex words. The skills learned now will help them throughout their educational career.
