Reading Focus of the Week: To know and understand 5 main narrative elements: character, setting, plot, actions, solution

* Remember- only teacher approved AR books/ tests will be counted as two AR test grades each quarter.  


*Homework depends on each student's literacy choice of the day.Please see your child's agenda to determine HW vs. in class literacy practice for each day.




...Be sure to a.) Read 20 minutes a night

        b.) Create a plan for what you would like to read and be challenged by new topics

*Remember- AR goals are based on a 20 minute day calculation. Point goals are indivualized and are based on STAR test reading level ranges. These ranges are considered recommendations for success in buildling comprehension and vocabulary. I encourage students to read books of high interest-even if they are above their indivudual reading range. In addition, if a book is a part of series, considered a classic novel, and/ or is part of our Caudill Book Program- reading ranges do not apply. Students needs to explore all books - making the act of reading a "want" rather than a "need."Smile
