Third grade students can practice reading skills by playing games on ABCYa.com, MrNussbaum.com, or PARCC Games. The PARCC Games website offers games specifically designed to help students master Common Core Reading standards.
To play reading games on the Mr. Nussbaum website, students can go to the home page and select the yellow 3 button from the Grade Levels menu. They should then select Language Arts to browse reading, spelling and grammar games and activities. The "Story Units" game helps students practice close reading and comprehension skills, and the "Digraph Crosswords" game reinforces contextual vocabulary and reading comprehension skills.
On ABCYa, students can play "Sight Word Bingo" or "Word Clouds for Kids" to practice identifying vocabulary words. To play games targeted towards third graders, students should visit the home page, click Grade 3, and then click Letters to browse reading, spelling and grammar games.
