I Read, You Read is a great way to get parents/adults involved in a child's literacy education. This pack gives children and adults the opportunity to spend a little time reading short passages and answering comprehension questions together. It is so important for readers of any age to see modeled reading as often as possible. It is also super important that they see the people around them reading... especially their parents! The overall goals of these passages are for children to be interacting directly with an adult while completing the page, as well as reading and responding to a text.

This pack is great for: parent interaction, modeling of good reading and successful reading of simpler passages to stay motivated. In addition, each passage includes comprehension questions related directly to the passages which gives the adult (whether teacher or parent) an idea of whether the passage was understood or not. Having a child read and then write answers to comprehension questions together is an opportunity to provide parents with an idea of questions they can ask their child when reading other stories.

This 3rd Grade Edition includes 30 passages that match up to 3rd grade reading levels. The student version of the passages include sight words, compound words, silent e words, vowel combination words, blends, added endings (including comparative endings), digraphs, contractions, silent letter sounds, consonants with different sounds, base words with suffixes, multiple syllable words, plurals, complex sentences and picture clues to help with challenging words. {These passages are not individually leveled, but they are fitting of 3rd grade level readers.}

These passages can be used in different ways depending on what works best for your classroom/students:

*The passages can be sent home as homework for a parent-child reading time.

*The passages can be done with parent volunteers in the classroom (ideally in a one-on-one pull out session, if you are so lucky!).

*The passages can be used by the teacher in a one-on-one/small group/whole group setting.

No matter the option chosen, these passages are intended to be done with an adult so that students can see fluent reading and have some positive attention from an adult about reading!

I hope your little readers enjoy these passage as much as mine do!

Enjoy & Happy Reading! :)
