Each week we will be working on a new story from our reading series. We will be discussing the target vocabulary words, sequence of events, story plot, characters, setting, etc.
Don't forget that our Reading tests are on Fridays.
Accelerated Reading tests can be taken on each of our weekly reading stories.
Students are encouraged to read for Book It to earn their free personal pizza. Simply read 20 minutes each school night, fill out the calendar and return to school at the end of the month.
Accelerated Reader is ready!
Students have recieved their User Names and Passwords. Studens can look up books from home using the following website. Once they have read a book, your child can complete an AR test at school.
Students are encouraged to read books at home or school and to test on them to reach their AR goals.
Each day during our Reading time we will be implementing the Daily Five. This is a way of structuring the reading block so every student can be working independently in literacy tasks. These tasks will positively support student's ability to read and write, as well as develop a love for reading and writing. Students will be given meaningful whole group instruction and then time to read and write independently while I will be working with small groups of students. The Daily Five consists of five working areas: Read to Self, Work on Writing, Read to Someone, Listen to Reading, and Word Work.
