The Reading Nook

At The Reading Nook, we have taken the guesswork out of selecting the best children's books by doing the research for you.  Here you will find high quality children's literature recommended by reading experts.  Your third grade child is probably reading more independently now that he or she is older.  Assuming that your child can call the words in print, the focus now shifts more from decoding words to comprehending meaning and reading fluency.  Children are now in a position to be taught comprehension strategies, or the steps good readers use to make sure they understand the text.  Students who are in control of their own reading comprehension become purposeful, active readers.  Reading fluency is the ability to read text accurately and quickly.  Fluent readers are able to better understand what they are reading because they are reading rapidly and accurately.  What can you do to encourage comprehension and fluency?  Encourage reading independently and continue reading aloud to your child.
