Description

Calling all 3rd Grade Teachers who are ready to TRANSFORM their ELA block and improve reading comprehension!  Rooted in Reading for 3rd Grade is a set of lesson plans and activities that focus around a read-aloud story each week with everything you need to facilitate a love of reading in your classroom.  We’ve got lesson plans, reading activities, crafts, and printables that focus around a read-aloud story each week. 

Here's how it works. The teacher READS the book throughout the week and models how to think deeply, ask questions, monitor comprehension, and so much more.  Each week we focus on different comprehension skills and strategies that will take your little learners on a reading journey like never before.  All lesson plans and activities are aligned with the Common Core Standards and TEKS.  This can be used as a stand-alone curriculum OR as a supplemental curriculum.  You can do ALL of what we include or pick and choose the activities that work best for you and your students!
