I had the great fortune to meet The Nerdy Book Club founders at a dinner for Anne Ursu hosted by Walden Pond Press to celebrate her latest chapter book, The Real Boy. Colby Sharp, one of The Nerdy Book Club founders, mentioned that he was teaching third grade this year, a move from years spent teaching fourth grade and I got very excited because I have a son in third grade! To complete this list of 10 perfect 3rd grade read aloud books either for parents to read at home or for a classroom, I asked my girls what books their teachers read to them in third grade. Giving them wonderful works of writing to emulate helps them think about things like setting, voice, character, plot and experiencing sensations through words.
The best part of a perfect read aloud, I think,  is how mesmerized the children become.
My son says, “Because of Winn Dixie was a extremely good book and when we read it, had everybody in the class wrapped inside the book. My oldest’s third grade teacher flagged me down two years ago to tell me how much she loved this chapter book. In some ways this book reminds me of Charlotte’s Web so I like the pairing so kids can compare and contrast. My son says, “My class is still reading it but it is a very good book so far and everybody loves it.
Grasshopper and Sensei’s third grade teacher recommended this easy chapter book to me for her and I ended up using it for her book club. As I read this book with my daughter, I got that deja vu feeling and realized that I had read a long time ago too!
THIS STORY HONORS THE TEACHER THAT TOOK TIME TO SEE A CHILD THAT WAS DROWNING AND NEEDED HELP. PickyKidPix said that these were her two favorite Doug Cushman mysteries that she read in third grade. It’s about finding the wonder in everyday life and discovering that the people in your community have amazing stories and experiences! My son ended up doing a book project on The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs for rising 4th grade summer homework.
This is one of my favorite chapter books but remains is lesser known than it deserves to be. Chester is a cricket from Connecticut that winds up in picnic basket and ends up in New York City’s Times Square. My son said that they read this mystery chapter book for read aloud and he highly recommends it.
The final Read Aloud book of the year was in prepration for a field trip to Plimoth Plantation. This would be great because their cousin was working at Plimoth Plantation when we visited and that would make for a rich discussion! My son tells me that they started this chapter book about the Wampanoag Native Americans but will not have time to finish it before school ends.

I love it when the movie is true to the book like Charlotte’s Web and equally fantastic! Right now, I really want to focus his mind on concentrating and understanding the story to another level. Hi Mia – to answer your question, I taught a combined classroom of grades 3-5 for three years, then one year of just first grade, and three more years of grades 1-2. Pragmatic Mom recently posted…Rebecca Stead: From Attorney to Secret Writer to Newbery Winner! I really like this list – we read some of the books either together or separately, but I’d like to make sure that we will hang 10 on this list ?? Thanks for sharing with Afterschool!
Background: Cover the top two-thirds of your bulletin board with light blue bulletin board paper, adding a few white cloud cutouts cut from white bulletin board paper.
Title: "Welcome to Seussville!" - We love how Suhaill created a colorful bunting from vibrant card stock and Seuss-inspired letters!
Happily authoring posts about lesson plans, crafts, unique bulletin board ideas, and other helpful resources for MPM Ideas since 2008.
Isn't it interesting how two displays with the same theme and quote can look so different? While this isn't technically a bulletin board display, it was too stinkin' cute not to pass along! Celebrating the holidays as a family and passing on traditions is an important part of every culture.
Due to this contestant giving people an incentive to vote for their bulletin board through the use of exchanges, they have been disqualified from the contest.
A fun idea for fall, we think this apple themed bulletin board idea would be awesome when paired with an apple exploration day - i.e.
I seem to be continuously searching for books that will pique my girls interests and motivate them to read.
In my efforts to provide you with a variety of choices I even enlisted the help of family and friends who openly also shared their children's favorites with me via Facebook (Don't you love social media?!).
My girls enjoy reading mysteries and trying to figure out what happened before it's revealed in the book. Magic Tree House has been one of the most popular series in both my home and classroom over the years. Flat Stanley is such a fun series because there are so many different adventures to read and follow along with.
Roscoe Riley is a 1st grader who always seems to find himself involved in some sort of mishap. This series has been around awhile and though it has chapters, the chapters are actually short stories.


Here on Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas you will find mom talk, family fun, learning ideas & resources, creative crafts, playtime fun, product reviews and giveaways and plenty of Lil Diva antics!Being a mom is its own unique kind of adventure!
Quickly and not surprisingly, we started talking about perfect third grade read aloud books. And how much they learn to love reading; not as a chore to fill out a reading log but as a story that they can not wait to hear the next installment.
It’s a perfect chapter book in my mind where whole adds up to much more than the sum of the parts. Her teacher said that girl bullying tends to rear its ugly head in third grade and this book centers around the role of bystanders in bullying.
FALKER HAD REACHED INTO THE MOST LONELY DARKNESS AND PULLED ME INTO BRIGHT SUNLIGHT AND SAT ME ON A SHOOTING STAR.
His third grade teachers have used Cushman’s mystery picture books to lead off the mystery writing unit and have requested him! I had always loved this book but wondered and worried if it was too old fashioned and slow paced to hold kids’ attention. Though it’s the first book in a series, the rest of the books are not nearly as good as this one. It’s a wonderful example of strong voice in writing as well as just a really great read. Debbie Reese of American Indians in Children’s Literature has issues with how the Wampanoags are portrayed and her post is here.
There are so many great themes in the book to think about that relate to kids and friendships. Yes, this list is great for 3rd grade read aloud but kids in 4th and 5th grade would be able to read independently.
For the bottom third, cut several strips of the green bulletin board paper (of varying heights), fringing the top of each.
Paint recycled gift wrap rolls with yellow craft paint, using black electrical tape to add stripes to the dried "tree trunks". Purchase a bulletin board set, freehand your own Seuss characters, or find free clip art online to print, cut, and laminate! Seuss themed learning environment for her kiddos last year and we just love her welcome board design. Seriously, it's so vibrant and cheerful it makes us want to go back to elementary school!
It's wonderful to see her work through some of the word play and laugh out loud as she reads her books. My oldest started reading Young Cam Jansen in Kindergarten a few years ago and we added many of the books to our home library. Well the Clue Crew is a hip, modern version featuring a young Nancy Drew and her two best friends as they work together to uncover mysteries. Each book in this series features one of the main characters - the Critter Club members and a mystery involving an animal. Bink and Gollie are friends who appear to be opposites but who actually complement each other in all the right ways.
The illustrations are nice, the vocabulary is simple enough for independent readers but still entertaining plot wise that it will keep them reading. Draw almost the whole body, then draw in the straps for the Minion's farmer jean jumpsuit style overalls, then draw in the arms, and half the gloves.
And the weird thing is that my son’s teacher had read all three perfect third grade books that Colby mentioned!
My two daughters each have had these other two 3rd grade teachers and they are wonderful teachers! Their teachers also mentioned books to me in past years which I am including, trying as best as I can to channel them.
At our elementary school, third graders are subjected to the Long Composition Standardized Test which takes the better part of the day for them to complete. Other perfect read aloud books gently teach empathy by letting reader see the world from a point of view they would not ordinarily experience.
In this case, it’s Charlotte’s artistry with web making as well as her knowledge of words! Every character is memorable with a story to tell and somehow all these stories meld together into a satisfying ending with an uplifting message. I actually think it makes the reader into a kinder person just through the act of experiencing the story. PickyKidPix said that it was because they knew the story from movies so the book was ruined for them. I was thrilled that my kids’ friends talked about it and, when questioned, said that they liked it a lot. There aren’t many Newbery winners that work for third grade and this would work fine for 2nd grade too.
If you want to do a book comparison, I’d recommend reading The One and Only Ivan next because there are very similar themes of friendship and saving your friend using your skills. Attach the tallest piece first, allowing the fringe to hang down and adjusting it here and there to look like  ‘hills of grass’ on the ‘horizon’.
Attach a trunk to each side of the bulletin board and create a top for each tree using colorful art tissue paper. She enjoys the chapter books even more than the originals because in these books Amelia is a little girl just like her, experiencing many things for the first time.
My 2nd grader started reading these last year in 1st grade and we've gone through quite a bit of the series. My 1st grader was instantly taken with her upon reading the first book in the series where we find she can communicate with animals. This series is definitely geared towards girly-girls who will certainly find themselves endeared with the main character.


The characters are their age, the adventures are fascinating and you learn interesting facts while enjoying the books.
The vocabulary is not difficult, the books are short (for chapter books) and they have color illustrations.
The characters are funny, the illustrations are like a comic book and add to the appeal of the story.
In an age where so much is fast paced it's nice to read a series that doesn't rely on magic, crazy kid antics, etc.
I know I should have made a lesson a long time ago on this character, but it totally slipped my mind as to doing more characters from the film. You will draw the shapes of the glasses, then draw in the mouth and more of the head on the sides. I REMEMBER FEELING DUMB, THAT TERRIBLE FEELING ABOUT MYSELF WAS COMPOUNDED BY BEING TEASED BY A BULLY. FALKER, BUT ALSO TO WARN YOUNG PEOPLE THAT MEAN WORDS HAVE A TERRIBLE POWER…AND THAT THEY SHOULD DO ALL THAT THEY CAN TO SEE THAT TEASING STOPS AT THEIR SCHOOL.
You know what I mean - that book that hooks them and makes them want to keep reading long after you've called them to dinner or told them to go to bed.
The books are perfect for this age group as they make that transition into chapter books but still need pictures and fun to keep their attention for a longer (chapter) book.
They are engaging reads with characters that will appeal to this age group (especially girls).
My older daughter wasn't as fond of the series because she's not the "beauty queen" type like my youngest it. The books are great for this age group because they have a large font, illustrations and wording and vocabulary geared for younger readers. These books will keep your kids reading and working on those essential reading and comprehension skills.
The characters are relatable and the addition of animals will appeal to many young readers. My girls enjoyed correcting her grammar and mispronunciations - they always found it hilarious. This series is great for 1st & 2nd graders who are delving into chapter books but still need illustrations (picture clues!) and a simplified vocabulary while telling an interesting and engaging story. These stories will appeal to any animal loving children and there are quite a few in the series to explore. The books are short and sweet introductions to chapter books for children that are ready to make the transition. They are often heard talking to each other saying this sentence over and over again "No, no, no. THAT BOY CHANGED MY LIFE AND MADE ME FEEL SO UNSAFE AND SO SAD THAT I DIDN’T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL ANYMORE. The book that keeps them turning pages, till they reach the end and has them immediately wanting to pick up the next one in the series. This is a "newer" series that we look forward to following and reading more of as they are published. After reading the first book in the series alongside my daughter, Posey had won me over and my little one was hooked. They are short (typically about 30-35 pages) and follow a chapter format with color illustrations interspersed throughout the book. This is a book we read together because it does have some some words that require assistance (which I love!).
The book is interspersed with fun comic strips, written by Stink himself, which new readers enjoy having.
If you have a pink loving, performance giving princess at home - you'll want to try this series! They just keep coming out with more and I just keep buying them because it keeps my girls reading, haha.
The earlier books are perfect for my 1st grader and my 2nd grader gets a bit more of a challenge from the more recents books in the series. Nothing beats reading a book that makes you laugh out loud and Junie B always does that for us at some point in the story. My girls had great success with these books and still read them as independent readers on their own.
There are lots of books in this series and libraries are usually well stocked so you can enjoy them by the stack. But I think kids, after reading Wonder, will realize that they can choose to be Summer, who doesn’t need to be coerced to be kind, or Jack, who will stand up for his friend even if it costs him his friends, or Julian, a bully.
I had a few of those in my childhood (Insert mental image of me reading the Babysitters Club by moonlight long after my parents told me to get to bed here) so I wanted to compile a list of our recent favorite series in the hopes that it would add a good read or two (or hopefully lots more!) to your book shelf. Posey is a spunky girl who gives voice to many of the same fears and wishes that most 1st grade girls have. The newer ones are a bit longer with more complex vocabulary which has allowed us to transition right along with the series. My daughter always figures them out before the Clue Crew and ends with a "See, I told you!" as we turn the last page. CruzJune 1, 2014 at 12:22 PMAnother series to add to your list is the A to Z mysteries by Ron Roy. Posey is the kind of character that will endear little girls and not leave parents cringing.
