This month I have been working on creating Book Outlines for all of our Rooted in Reading books. These outlines showcase what is focused on for each book used in our Rooted in Reading curriculum. Our hope is that this helps you as you are planning out your curriculum for the year!

All About the Book Outlines
On each outline you will see the book title, author, nonfiction reader title, 6 main vocabulary words, comprehension skills addressed, and the grammar focus for the week.
Teaching Resource mentioned in this blog post: 3rd Grade Rooted in Reading March
In March, 3rd grade students focus on biographies. These aren’t any old biographies though. These are beautiful narrative nonfiction books! I Dissent tells the story of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her incredible ability to persevere. Students focus on Cause and Effect, Opinion Writing, and Identifying Important Events. They also learn information about The United States Judicial System through the nonfiction reader.
On a Beam of Light
On a Beam of Light is the story of Albert Einstein and the challenges he overcame as a young child. Students also read 6 other stories about people who had to overcome obstacles to find success. The third graders will also focus on identifying the audience and point of view.
Have you ever read Hoop Genius? It is the story of how James Naismith invented the game of basketball. It’s the perfect picture book for March Madness!
Students will also read about other basketball legends through the nonfiction reader. We’ve provided a Reader’s Theater for students to use while reviewing several different grammar skills.
