Daily 5 Cafe
We have a 90 minute time block each day for our Daily 5 and Cafe time. During this time, we read aloud to students, have two mini lessons, and the students get to choose what they'd like to do twice (read to self, read with someone, listen to reading, word work, or writing).
We are very excited about reading in 3rd grade and encourage students to read as often as they can in school and at home! By doing this, they will become VORACIOUS readers!
There are a few different books clubs that take place in third grade. Book clubs are a great way to challenge students. The students are instructed to read certain parts of a book, do an activity on it, and then meet once a week to discuss what they read and learned.
