Third Grade builds reading stamina daily, working toward our goal of 20 minutes of uninterrupted reading. Notice how students do not lift their eyes from the page, even as their teacher walks around the room. They are comfortable, they are engaged, and they are growing their brains.

  • 00:10 Read to Self...We met our goal!

    Today, students met their goal of uninterrupted read to self for 20 minutes. Students...
    1. Chose a good fit book
    2. Started reading right away
    3. Showed silent body-silent book
    4. Stayed in ONE spot
    5. Used reading strategies
    6. Built stamina.

    Here is the moment just after I rang the chimes to call students back to the rug. They described their reading time as "peaceful, relaxing, and quiet." The best part? They were growing their brains the whole time!
