Reading at Home

This year, we have made it a class goal to do all we can to become the best readers possible. We ALL want to improve our reading skills, whether it be fluency, comprehension, or meta cognition. Your kids spend 50 minutes a day reading in our reading block, plus extra time reading during our content times. They should also be reading at least 30 minutes every night. Reading is the single most important activity that kids can do to expand their writing skills and vocabulary, not to mention their ability to access interesting information to share with others! Last week we started our home reading logs which they can use to track their daily progress. They will be given a new reading log on Mondays, and they will be due on Mondays. Thank you for helping support them on their journey of becoming fluent readers and writers. I look forward to seeing how the kids each progress as the year goes on! You can find a copy of the reading log on the Documents to Download page of this website.
