Your third graders will read a story about Donny and his family as they attempt to get to their family reunion. After they finish reading, they will answer who, what, when, where, why, and how questions.
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop and practice reading comprehension by sharing about books they’ve read. After taking turns telling a partner all about their chosen books, students will write or draw about what their partner shared.
As students begin to read independently, they may have questions about what they read. These questions should be encouraged! Have students record their questions about their reading or any unknown words on this graphic organizer.
