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 lessons 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
1. Saint Nicholas Day
4. Pearl Harbor
8. National Cookie Day
9. Walt Disney
10. Read a New Book Month
What are others saying?!
Happily ever teaching- I love using these during small groups and are perfectly related to that month's events! Thanks!
Amy- This really helped my students with answering text dependent questions and using text evidence to support their answers. It was also nice to have engaging texts during this time of year. Thanks!
Kaylynn- Love these texts. Great resource and I love how they pair up with events for the month.
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!
