Welcome to 3rd grade reading!!!! My thoughts on reading is as follows: Read, Read, Read!!!! If we want our children to be great readers, we have to practice. Practice makes perfect! I ask that my students read their reading story every night before their final assessment on Friday. If you feel they are reading the story well, just make sure they are reading something at night for at least 20 minutes. Every Friday, students will have a reading assessment on their story for the week. Show your children that you are interested and read along with them every night!!!!!
