Welcome to our 3rd Grade Home Page!


Homework Expectation:

1.  Reading at home, at least 5 days a week- 30 minutes at a time. Students are expected to fill out their reading log and return it to school when both sides are full, for a blank sheet.
2. Spelling Packet, due 2/18, quiz on Friday. 
Book Review- Due when completed.

Finding Just Right Books

1. Choose a book based on interest- read the back.
2. Do the "5 finger test" which means you read a random page in the book, (preferably a whole page) and count how many times you either come across a word you don't know, or can't pronounce. If you have only 2 or 3 fingers up, great. If you have 4 or more- too hard. If you have 2 or less, too easy.
3. Listen to the way the book sounds either out loud or in your head- are you stumbling, stuttering, stopping and starting, or are you reading smoothly, hear the characters voices, understanding what is going on.
4. Check the range or level. It should be in your range. If it is in your range, #2 and #3 will probably back it up.
5. Read the first chapter to see if you still like it, and are still reading it well.
