Read 180 students should be bringing home a "Home Reading Log". I am asking that students read at least 20-30 minutes per night and fill out the sheet accordingly (with parent/guardian signature!). I just want to be able to read their summary and know that they actually did their reading. I check these every morning now and if they are not done, they do their reading log at recess. I want them to do their reading logs 1 time over the weekend as well so that they can have 5 entries per week. Thanks for your help in making this a success. Research shows that by increasing the amount of time you spend in a book your reading level should rise! READ, READ, READ!
Our focus for this quarter will be to write an informational piece that teaches others interesting or important information about a topic. The children will be doing research, note taking, editing/revising, drafting and publishing. We hope to get these typed up and hung in the hallway!
