At the 3rd grade level, we highly suggest that encourage students to read aloud as often as possible. This forces them to slow down and pace how they read passages. This leads to long self-processing time which long term will improve their comprehension of what they read. In order to do this successfully you will need to reassure students that your room is a safe space to read aloud. You will need to work to maintain a positive climate when struggling readers are reading aloud, but after a few behavior corrections, it become the classroom norm. I would also encourage teachers to be included in the reading aloud period. I prefer to start that way the tone is set for the room, but other teachers use this in many different ways. See what works for you. Third grade students should be focused on learning new words, mostly with their decoding skills.
Over most of our 3rd Grade reading comprehension worksheets students will read a short, one-page passage, such as a fun short story or informative piece, and be asked to answer multiple-choice questions about it. There are three sheets for each separate reading passage, so be sure to print them all (we have numbered them to help out). We hope these worksheets help students expand their vocabulary as well as help them start taking an active role in expanding their personal knowledge base. At this level students should begin to look at extended version questions as well as reading longer passages. The worksheet set tries to complement this.
