Reading-

Please login and use Raz-Kids or read at least 20 min. at home every day. Please fill out the Reading Calendar when your student reads 20min./day.  Or read the book for Reading for all Learners that are sent home. Remember the reading calendars count on your student’s grade as 20 points.

Remember-

1)   Your child will come home with a book that has been assigned to him/her at their individual reading level.

2)   Your child needs to read this book AT LEAST 3 times and should make no more than 2 mistakes on the third read.

3)   If there are questions at the bottom of the pages ask your child the questions and discuss the story to check for comprehension.

4)   Once your child is fluently reading the story (reading quickly without pausing or making mistakes) and has read through it at least 3 times, have your child color the picture that is circled on the tracking sheet.

5)   Please have your child return the book/folder to school to get a new book.  The student needs to be fluent with the book BEFORE returning it to school.

***Books will not always come home in number sequence order, but the book number should match the circled picture**
