3rd Grade Reading List

3rd Grade Book List

Last year we used visual reading lists for the first time and it was SO helpful! I chose to do this again for this upcoming homeschool year and today I am sharing my daughter’s 3rd grade reading list.

I used many sources to find books I thought she might enjoy and that I wanted her to try. I have not read all of these, but looked at reviews and am comfortable with giving these a try.  After deciding on many book choices for her, I created a page with each cover so she can browse and choose her next book easily. We do not own all of these so I have her choose and I put the book on hold at the library!

3rd Grade Book List

My daughter can read and comprehend beyond a 3rd grade level, but she still enjoys books focused towards the younger crowd. I try to balance this and spent lots of time on this list! She would read Critter Club and Magic Puppy all day long, and I still allow her to read anything she chooses alongside of books I choose. We also always have a basket of picture books she chooses from the library too! You are never too old for picture books!

Below you can see Amazon links to all of the books on this list {click over to the blog if you are reading in email}.

Downloads…

I have a few downloads you are welcome to use if you’d like. First, here is a copy of the book choice page featuring the books I chose for her. If you want to create your own visual list, it is easy!  Just grab the book cover images online somewhere {I used Amazon} and then copy them into a document and resize how you want!  I use PowerPoint to create my documents, I like their positioning tools the best.

Here is a blank reading record like hers. I just have her write the title, author and rate the book 1-10 based on her opinion.

Here’s another reading log we have used.  It is very similar to the one we are using now.

Making Tops with Spielgaben

Spinning Tops with Spielgaben

{We were given the Spielgaben set to review and are honored to have them as a blog sponsor.}

One of the best things about owning a Spielgaben set is the open-ended play that occurs. This summer has provided many hours of free time and my 8 year old daughter has chosen to create with our set many times. She had loads of fun one day making tops which entertained our new kitten tremendously!

After she made her first set of tops, I challenged her to try different designs and test which one worked best. It was fun to see her get surprised when one I suggested worked well even though she thought it wouldn’t!

Spielgaben-3

The tops have been played with a lot since they were created, many have become kitten toys!

See our top fun in action in the video below…

I am in homeschool planning mode, getting some Spielgaben ideas together to extend our math lessons when we begin school in August!
