This reference notebook for Reading Literature (Third Grade) Standards will help your students keep track of their learning in an easy an effective way.

I intentionally kept the pages simple so that your students will not have to do a lot of cutting and pasting....their focus will be on learning the target lessons! Printed reference pages fit perfectly into a composition book or by changing your printer settings can be printed to regular paper size.

-Reference Pages for each R.L. Grade 3 Standard (CCSS)
-21 Graphic Organizers for additional practice (for each standard)

I recommend using these interactive pages to introduce the standard to your students. Give a complete mini-lesson, using the notebook page. Then have students practice the skill using a class read aloud. Picture books work great for this! Each reference page includes a “Try It” section. After the mini-lesson, have students glue the pages into their notebooks ( I suggest cutting of the edges in advance to save time). Then they can complete the “Try It” section independently or as a group, using your class read aloud or a book that they are reading independently. Be sure to collect these or walk around as they are working to ensure that students are on the right track!

Keep in mind that this is definitely not the “end” of teaching for each objective It is just an introduction and a “first try”. That is why I have included Graphic Organizers, Thinkmarks and Fiction Response Menus for continued practice with Reading Literature objectives.
