Third Grade Reading

Welcome to Mrs. Katie's 3rd grade reading website!

You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all  you need is a book.



Third graders will complete 3 units from Louisiana Guide books throughout this school year. Within each unit, students will work on reading, writing, and grammar skills. We will also have daily reading practice in which we will be using the UNRAAVEL strategy to analyze texts. Students will learn how to complete close reads in order to better comprehend what is being read. We will also learn new grammar skills and practice these skills daily. Spelling words will be given at the beginning of each week. Students will be given spelling homework from a practice book that will stay in their back pack. 


Grades- Student grades will come from a variety of activities. These might include, but are not limited to group work, comprehension/ skill quizzes, spelling quizzes, grammar quizzes, writings (formal and informal), and reading tests. 


AR- The third grade AR goal is to reach 40 points with an average of at least 80% proficiency. Third graders are required to read and log reading Monday through Thursday for homework. This will be checked on Friday for completion. 


Signed papers- Signed papers will go home on Tuesday of each week. Please look through your child's papers with them and sign each graded assignment. 


Class Dojo- You were given a class dojo login sheet. Download the class Dojo app and enter our class code. This will allow you to view your child's progress throughout each day and receive messages from me. They will receive points for positive behavior and loose points for misbehaving. Students are rewarded weekly based on dojo points.
