Practice close reading and text evidence skills everyday with a short paragraph that is high interest to your students. Go through every third grade common core standard every month with a paragraph that your students will read and answer questions with each day!
Every month has one fiction and one nonfiction passage for each theme and there are 10 themes!
**These passages are meant for third grade, but can easily work for high level second graders or fourth graders***
Why will these paragraphs help your students grow?
Engagement- Students love the topics and learn something new with each topic! They are also quick so students don't lose interest doing them everyday!
Rigor- The questions make students think and go back in the text to prove their answer.
Low Prep- Print and use!
Versatile- You can use them for morning work, homework, assessments, or just skill practice!
1 Fiction and 1 Nonfiction paragraph for each theme
The Bundle Comes With:
1. A full year of paragraphs
2. 20 Paragraphs Each Month (1 Fiction & 1 NonFiction)
3. 10 Themes a Month
4. Answer Keys
5. Teacher Guide
6. All Common Core Standards Each Month
What are others saying?!
Katherine- "I bought this at the beginning of March and quickly made it a part of our morning routine. It has been invaluable in reviewing for testing, and spiraling through all the reading standards! I cannot wait to use it ALL YEAR next year (because I totally bought the bundle!) This is one of my all time favorite/most valuable TpT purchases!"
Natalie- "This. Saved. My. Life!!! My district was in the middle of piloting several different curriculums, and the old resource was so outdated I refused to use it. These were so great to help my students practice the different skills, and also a great assessment tool for me. Thank you!!"
Allison- "This is amazing at covering lots of different standards! You get LOTS of low prep materials for the price. I used this in small groups with students, but also had them do it as independent work as standard practice. Love this!"
I needed my students to have constant practice of all the standards, but I didn't want to spend a TON of time close reading everyday and that is how paragraph of the day was born. Now students can practice every skill every single month! Plus, I can use them for morning work, homework, or a quick assessment! I hope they work for you as well as they do for me!
