My third graders are amazing readers. There is always a love for reading in my classroom. I engage my students in vivid read aloud books every few weeks. They absolutely soak every minute of it in. In third grade, reading becomes a way to seek out more knowledge and really gain a love for it. The process as shifted from "learning to read" to "reading to learn.
I love watching my kids spend time as a group or as individuals reading.
They gain stamina and an innate love for reading. My students also love thematic books on certain subjects and holidays. They are an amazing bunch of kids and I am beyond thrilled to watch them grow.
I want my students to have a classroom where a variety of book titles are available. I have a love for reading that I pour into my students. Reading is a joy and I want to encourage voracious reading appetites with rich- text print. I read to the kids and the kids read independently. I absolutely love being able to offer cross cultural and inspiring Growth Mindset picture books.
Books, like Giraffes Can't Dance, and several of the Patricia Polacco books, give evidence and help connect students to a positive Growth mindset.
We will be reading and writing literature responses to several of the books requested.
