This is a fabulous bundle that includes 36 separate lesson plans to use with your 3rd grade students in the library.

These lessons can be used if you are on a 6-week or 9-week grading period, or can also be used in isolation. Most activities correspond to either a fiction or nonfiction book (sometimes both) that are commonly found in school libraries. Most activities are general enough that you can also substitute other books to go with the lesson. If you follow them in order, they will take you through a normal U.S. school calendar year (August/September through May/June).

See the book list and notes about substitutions on BookShop (includes affiliate links).
