I noticed my third grade students would get stuck in a groove of reading a certain book series or a certain genre with their reading logs, and I wanted to encourage them to read more genres and expand their horizons to other books they may not typically think of. To get them to read different genres of books, I created Read Across Oklahoma, a twist on Read Across America. Third grade social studies standards include Oklahoma, so I thought this would be a good cross-curricular activity between social studies and reading.
