Study Skills for Grades 3
Before you read the story...take a quick look at the questions. They tell you what to look for as you read! If you see a new word, use the words around it as clues. They will help you figure out what the new word means.
Read all your answer choices before you decide. Sometimes the last choice is best. Cross out silly answer choices to help get you closer to the right answer.
Be able to prove your answers by finding and highlighting information in the story. If you see a name in the passage you can't read, just say your name instead.
Stuck on a hard question? Skip it and move on. Come back to it later if time allows. Use picture clues.
Read! Read! Read! Read! Read! Read aloud to someone. Read different types of books and magazines. Find out what you like.
Make up stories and write them down. Use the punctuation marks when you read, they make a difference in the meaning. Turn on the closed caption on your TV and turn off the sound.
