SHARED REDING
GUIDED READING
INDEPENDENT READING
All tests should be SIGNED and CORRECTED!
Independent Reading
(Done OUTSIDE of School)
It is expected that students complete AT LEAST 2 novels outside of class EVERY trimester.
These novels should be within your child's designated Lexile level. EXCEPTIONS may be made with prior approval based on student interest or availability of appropriate content. District believes Lexile is NOW obsolete. Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System should now be used.

PROBLEM!!!
Students should be reading every day for AT LEAST 20 - 30 minutes (100 - 150 pages per week).
Reading Record Log:
Records will be checked every Friday in class until the end of September to teach pacing and how to be a conscientious reader. Students will record the date range for the week in which they read (Monday - Thursday's dates should appear), the title and author of their selected novel, a brief response to the literature should be placed in the "comments" section along with the page range read for the week, and finally the genre of the book should be represented by its corresponding number from the provided key.
The child's chosen novel should be brought to school EVERY day!
Book Reports will be submitted EVERY OTHER MONTH. The format of your child's book report will be self - selected and should appeal to his/her dominating learning style preference. (A schedule with corresponding due dates will appear in October's Newsletter for this will begin after our Newbery Award Projects have been presented.)
For Trimester 1 students will read their Newbery novel and one of their choice due to the late distribution of Lexile scores.
