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

What are others saying?!
Melissa- This is such a wonderful resource that ties directly into the different reading skills for 3rd grade. I have used these resources in small group, and for reading homework. I like that the parents can see what skill the kids are working on in real life.
Emily- This is an amazing resource to have the students practice reading skills. I love how it provides fiction and nonfiction stories!
Kaylynn- After buying this one I went on and bought the next month. I love how it gives you a paired text, stories that go along with events of the month and texts that are engaging.
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!
