I will be working at a Waldorf methods charter school this year -- it's my first year, and the school's first year, and I'm teaching 3rd grade. As you probably know, Waldorf schools traditionally start teaching reading later than public schools do, but as we are a public school we are held to state standards and testing, and 3rd grade is a huge benchmark year!
I have several students coming out of private Waldorf schools who read below grade level. I will be doing literature circles in the afternoons and would love recommendations for books that 3rd graders would like but that would be appropriate for emerging and transitional readers. Also, books that are multicultural or feature main characters that are not white. And any books appropriate for 3rd grade!
