Reading/Metacognition Third grade marks a transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn”. A balanced reading diet is important. Kids need to read books from all the genres. • How you read to your child is important. -Skinny questions: require simple yes/no/maybe or one word answers. Example: Did you like the story? -Fat questions: require a lot of discussion and explanation with interesting examples. They take more time to think through the answer in depth. Example: Why did the author of the story create a main character who was sneaky? What words create the mood of the story?

3 Key Ideas for Parents about Florida’s New Standards Thinking Deeply Common Core emphases critical thinking. It requires students to analyze more, discuss more, evaluate more, justify more and explain their thinking and understanding deeply, especially in writing. Thinking deeply is hard. Let it BE hard, help them talk it out. Integrating Learning Common Core emphasizes learning across disciplines (reading with math & social studies & science combined into one task). Students spend more time working together with different settings, structures & tools. Problems and solutions happen everyday in the real world! Showing How They Know Common Core emphases proof and evidence. Long gone are the days of worksheets, fact memorizations and skill & drill. Students are not taught this way and they are not assessed this way. The new tests will require students to explain how they know. (Copied from Pinterest)
