My goal is for ALL parents to be signed up for Bloomz so that you will all be able to involved in your child's learning.Please download the Bloomz App on your phone and use the Parent Access Code: E2VMQC to join our classroom.

3rd Grade Reading

Our reading curriculum in 3rd grade is based on the Texas TEKS. In my classroom I believe that students learn best when they have choices, and can learn in a cooperative learning environment through small groups, centers, technology and hands on learning. I have incorporated these elements along with innovative flexible seating to help your child reach their full learning potential.

Reading work may seem a little harder for your student, as it is much different from what they have seen in the past. Reading questions go deeper into the meaning of the text they are reading. Questions are more objective and make the students think a little harder.

Students are also required to "prove" their answers. This simply means I want them to go back into the chapter and find the page that the answer is on. This helps them to rethink their answer and not just quickly answer the question. Students who prove their work correctly generally make higher grades! :)
