Third Grade Reading
Reading Fluency in SeeSaw
SeeSaw is a fantastic way to capture and share student growth with reading fluency. Parents and students love to hear themselves from the beginning to the end of the year.
Read a Favorite Book with SeeSaw
In Seesaw, students photograph the text being read, then record their reading. Students should listen to themselves before submitting their work.
All 3rd-5th graders can access NewsELA via Clever. Use Newsela to practice nonfiction reading skills while learning about science and social studies curriculum. This is a science example activity you can use with other articles/genres. Students with low reading fluency can use Read&Write extension to have the article read out loud to them.
Character Traits in Popplet and SeeSaw
- Students take a picture of their book showing how their character is feeling. They underline evidence and add matching emojis or circle pictures to support their thinking.
SeeSaw at Open House!
- Put Chromebooks out at Open House so that students can complete this activity with their family.
- Post this Activity in advance with a note to parents so that they can do the activity from home if they are unable to attend Open House.
- If you prefer to have families use their phones, then have students make a journal post that families could leave a comment on and simply print out the QR codes to student assignments. Directions are below.
Here are some helpful tips as you end your school year with SeeSaw and get ready for Open House:
- How do we print out thumbnails and QR codes for a student’s entire journal for Open House? (note should NOT be done in color at 12￠ per page and set printing to print 9 pages on one page)
- How do I get a QR code for a Seesaw post?
- How do I tell viewers what to do with the QR code?
- How do families and students download an archive of student work?
- How long do families have access to their child’s Seesaw journal?
