Free online books to read for third graders

November 6, 2012 by Lauren Hill 23 Comments During the week of Thanksgiving, my children and I usually take a break from our regular school subjects and study about the First Thanksgiving.
I try to make it fun and have everything we do revolve around Thanksgiving – worksheets, matching games, reading, and even science! There are many great children’s books and online learning activities regarding the history of Thanksgiving. This group of worksheets will be used in our own homeschool during the week of Thanksgiving. Read to Learn Books for Free is a nonprofit children’s literacy initiative of The Children’s Trust in partnership with Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College. PURPOSE: The Children’s Trust and Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College founded and launched Read to Learn Books for Free in 2012.
SERVICE: Read to Learn Books for Free supplies 40 community bookshelves, from Homestead to Carol City, with books collected from book drives hosted in partnership with Miami-Dade County schools, businesses, organizations and events. SUPPORT: Read to Learn Books for Free has received overwhelming support from the community.


I'm Lauren, Wife and Mama to 4 kiddos ages 10 to 5, which we homeschool with a whole-heart approach.
Access to books is the first step for children to improve their reading skills, yet only one in 300 urban children owns a book. To raise awareness of book drives, the program hosts Reading Circles where children listen to stories and participate in book-themed activities. Drivers can deliver to community bookshelves more quickly when volunteers help sort, sticker and pack books. I'm so glad you found your way here to Mama's, where you'll find lots of learning ideas for children and for moms, too. Nearly half of Miami-Dade County third graders fail to read at grade level, making them four times more likely to drop out of high school. All of the program’s 40 community bookshelves provide free books to children near Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ Educational Transformation Office (ETO) regions, where large percentages of third graders read below grade level. If you’d like to volunteer but can’t make it to the downtown office, consider hosting a book drive in your school or community.


Read to Learn Books for Free seeks to change that by providing free books in locations where parents and children visit together often, including WIC offices, juvenile justice centers, public housing offices and DCF offices. The target ages are children up to 8 years old, but the program also distributes books for teens up to 18 years old. The program can deliver a donation bin to your location and pick up the books at the end of the drive. Children choose books to read with parents while waiting for appointments at these locations, and then take them home to build their own personal libraries, creating a climate for reading comprehension and fluency to grow.
