Five-Half Club Grade 3 Book 3 (Alice and Jerry Basic Reading Program)
In Grade 3 there are three readers. If I Were Going can be used in four ways for different student purposes: as a quick review of the vocabulary from the previous year; as independent reading for accomplished readers; to provide new challenges for average readers; and as a regular teaching book for less proficient students. Through the Green Gate presents the bulk of the new vocabulary. Five-and-a-Half Club is a parallel reader designed to apply vocabulary to new content and to develop confidence, power, and pleasure in reading by supplying content well within the range of a pupils reading ability.
Grade 3 Workbooks provide writing lines with no dotted middles and emphasize reading skills and comprehension along with phonics and language arts skills. There are some informal tests at this level. In the workbooks for If I Were Going and Through the Green Gate there are brief teacher instructions along with test instructions and answers provided in the front and back covers of the workbook (very small print). There are no answers for these two workbooks. There is a reduced-page answer key (TE) for the Five-and-a-Half Club Workbook in the TE but no lesson plans.
