3rd Grade Reading Passages

Hand Selected Reading Selections

Your child will feel empowered by reading two different selections a week. We’ve chosen the best reading selections that will open your son or daughter’s world of reading. These selections were chosen to help your child learn to read independently.

Through our step-by-step methods, your child will learn how to talk about and summarize the stories they have read.

Reading Comprehension Long Term Memory

Build Long Term Memory Skills

Your child will answer questions to the books that they have read in the program a day or two after. Your child will learn to remember and recall what they have read by reviewing notes that they have written or dictated about the reading.

3rd Grade Spelling and Phonics

Learn beginning phonics with interactive video spelling lessons.

Your third grader will learn how to spell by phonetic patterns through our interactive video lessons. Your kids will learn and practice the phonetic patterns of English and will learn to identify patterns across words.

Each week, you get a spelling lesson video and a test video to follow step-by-step with a worksheet. The lessons are multi-sensory and help build auditory processing skills, visual processing skills, and tactile-kinesthetic skills.

Each level has 20 weeks of lessons, tests, worksheets, puzzles, and games. When you get to the end of one level, you can graduate to the next.

Reading Fluency Training

Reading fluency training is one of the most important strategies used to build your child’s success with reading. This is your child’s ability to read with speed and accuracy without conscious attention to the mechanics of reading. This is a critical skill as your child moves into the upper grades and the reading material becomes longer and more complicated. 

Our research-proven reading fluency drills work on training your eyes to move more efficiently and smoothly left to right. They also improve your kids’ visual processing speed, or how fast they can retrieve and process what they see. You and your kids will love seeing their improvement each day.

Planning and Study Skills Weekly Calendar Graphic Organizers

Build Executive Function Skills

Executive function skills are the decision making and planning skills that we all need in our daily lives. Your child will help decide when they will do certain activities and they will estimate how long each activity will take. After the activity is completed, they will reflect on how long it actually took and will start to build their time awareness and planning skills.

Brain-Body Activities

Brain-Body Activities

The brain and body work together as a machine, one designed to move through space efficiently, walking, moving, and maintaining balance. This connection allows you to see the shapes, sizes, and positions of letters on a page as well as improve eye tracking skills. As we improve the brain-body connection, reading and overall learning improve.

We have different activities each week that your kids will think are just fun games, but the activities actually work on improving their motor skills and brain-body connection.

    I am very grateful for having found Scholar Within. As a homeschooling mom, I am always in search of good materials that fit the needs of my children. Scholar Within has been especially beneficial for my 7th grader, his greatest challenges have been spelling, and clarity while reading out loud. I was amazed at the way in which Scholar Within combines phonics, spelling, and reading comprehension. My son has advanced significantly in these areas since we started using the program. He loves the reading selections and finds them very educative and interesting.
    Great program. I highly recommend it to any parent.

    Last summer my 3 kids were enrolled in both Scholar Within and another major reading program. Scholar Within had more fun activities and games and really focused on building the underlying skills to really prepare for the upcoming year. The other program didn’t build skills in the same way, and was less interactive in my home.

    The Monday exercise of reading and taking notes followed with questions on those selections on Wednesday is a really great help for my kids. This lets them work on their comprehension skills. It has made a big difference! The whole program has been a good experience for us. Thank you very much!

    Thank you for partnering with me to help my daughters improve their reading skills. They are really enjoying your program and are excited about becoming more confident readers. I am loving it already! I signed up my twin daughters, who are homeschooled.

    I really do like the reading fluency drills. They are making a difference for my son. They are so easy to fit into our day. The thing we didn’t like was all the printing we had to do each week.

    My son is doing well and shows improvements with the reading drills each day. He is also doing well with all the work that is presented. His overall work is improving too. He’s even able to find spelling errors now. Woohoo!

    I did find the videos and activities interesting. There was a bit too much printing for me.

    Even when I’m not sure how to reason/explain to my son about a reading comprehension answer, all I have to do is ask you. You are so good at giving quick replies that are easy for me to tell my son. Thank you!

    Your program has so many great things in it. The plan for an excursion was a brilliant idea! We made a trip to the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis and to the Science Museum in St. Louis. I have seen improvements and I have gained insight into how my daughter reads and processes (or lack thereof) the reading assignments. Thank you so very much! The whole-brain approach to improving reading has been very insightful.

    My son’s first drill trend is definitely going in the right direction. His words per minute increased by 17%, and his mistakes decreased, and this is only the first week. I can’t believe he had that much progress already. Thank you for this program and thanks so much for being available for questions, too!

    The videos made all the difference in the world. The spelling videos showed me step by step the structure. You really made spelling easy for my kids. I just keep working with the video, the spelling, the way you explain it, they watch it over and over. It really sinks in. Your materials help build their self-esteem up. They’re short quick activities. You can get so much done in half an hour.

    My daughter is begging me to do your reading program again to strengthen her skills. The guides for note-taking and how to pick out important information was only second to the fun activities each day last year. We look forward to seeing what’s in store for this year!
