PARENTS IN THE CLASSROOM: I would like you to be a part of our Friday Reading Block.  I encourage you to select your favorite children's short story and come in to read it aloud for 15 minutes to your student's classmates.  This is a great way to influence and support your child's interest in Reading.  After all, children learn the most while watching those people most important in their lives, and there is no one more important than family. Please click on your child's homeroom to sign up using the website Sign-Up Genius.

Homework: Nightly reading of AR book for 20 minutes
                   Wordly Wise (Word Study)

AR (Accelerated Reader):  You will be provided a parent log-in to check your student's reading progress and quiz scores.  This on-line program will be used daily during our warm-up sustained silent reading time of CHAPTER BOOKS in the classroom.  I will be encouraging your student to take a quiz over the reading from the previous evening's CHAPTER BOOK and/or the in class reading time.  This will improve your child's stamina (amount of time sitting and reading) and comprehension.  Your child's goal will be generated after they take the initial pre-diagnostic quiz on the second day of school.  THE MORE YOUR READ, THE MORE YOU KNOW!

Wordly Wise:  Your student will receive a workbook of their very own to complete every week for homework.  This is designed to target awareness of prefixes, suffixes, root, and Latin words that will aid in reading comprehension.  Each unit is designed to last for 2 weeks with a quiz/test at the end of the unit. 


Projects:  During the year, your student will be assigned both individual and group projects in Reading.  In order to accurately assess what your student knows (and to avoid chaos at home), they will be completing ALL of these projects in the classroom.  Participation, respectfulness, and communication while working with assigned groups is essential and skills that are used in real-world jobs/communities.

As you can see, this year is jam-packed and will be exciting, challenging, engaging, and better serve your student!  Remember to call or e-mail me to sign-up for a day to come in and read for 15 minutes!
