Guys, I can’t believe my baby is in the third grade! Wasn’t it just yesterday that he was a tiny baby with a big gummy smile? Time passes too quickly but I can’t deny that I love having another independent reader in the house (and so does amazon.com).
With the beginning of school and fall just around the corner, W and I sat down to put together our fall 2017 third grade-reading list. I purposefully requested he read a few books beyond his reading level and a few books that have a broader message to them than some of the more lighthearted reads from this summer. I promised that we’ll read them together so he’s not struggling with words and concepts on his own. Usually, we read at least one book a month out loud together so that I can help him with new words and so we can discuss the book’s message. Of course, he’s also chosen some fun new books that he’ll read on his own too!
