Summer vacation may be a break from our traditional school day, but let’s make it a time for summer reading. This summer, review your child’s list of recommended books that will help take them to higher Lexile Levels for the upcoming school year. Also, have them read at least 30 minutes twice a day.
Help your child enjoy their summer by preparing for the fall.
Enjoy summer reading.
during National Reading Month
Parents, let’s encourage all students to push for a higher Lexile Level by reading daily for 30 minutes or more during National Reading Month. To achieve this goal, we are encourage students to participate our Read Across Lindley campaign this month — as part of the national Read Across America initiative.
- … ask your students to explain to you which activities they completed during their Language Arts classes.
- … let them show you their work, such as activity sheets, notes, etc.
- … encourage them to practice those same lesson examples through online sources or workbook activities.
Again, let’s encourage them to push toward a higher Lexile Level.
Until our next blog entry … keep reading 30 minutes or more daily.
NOTE: Vocabulary.com is a great resource to enrich a child’s vocabulary.
Students can level with weekly tutoring opportunities. Please ask your child for the tutoring informational sheet and permission slip that I sent home recently. Below is the information:
Language Arts Support After-School Tutoring Class
As we enter our second quarter of this school year, I will be offering tutoring for all of my students to take them to the next level of success. This is an opportunity for them to improve their skills in reading comprehension and writing.
Even if your student is already excelling in Language Arts, this will be an opportunity for them to fine-tune their writing skills.
During this time students will be able to complete missing or incomplete assignments and complete recovery assignments.
To confirm your child’s participation in this opportunity, please complete the information on the right of this informational section. Keep this section and send the Parent Permission section to me by your child. Also, email me to confirm your approval. (Note: If another day or time is more convenient for you, please let me know.)

Hi Students and Parents,
Let’s finish Fall 2017 strong. We can become Star Readers by reading at least 30 minutes daily after a productive day at school. So after playing hard for 30 minutes, settle down with a book, magazine, etc., for at least 30 minutes. Please view the resources below.
eBook Library (Students use their sign-in information)
BrainPOP (Comprehension, writing, etc., resource)
Thanks for your enthusiasm and support.
> While students are enjoying their summer break, encourage them to fill moments of idle hours with reading books. Please remind them that they also have access to the following resources to stay in tune with reading, language arts, science, social studies, and math lessons on BrainPOP via Mackinvia.com.
> They can also build their vocabulary with another resource: vocabulary.com (NOTE: This site may require parental help with an email address).
Enjoy your summer!
We are moving into the spring with great strategies for reading comprehension. I’m challenging my students to read daily for 30 minutes at home to build fluency and comprehension. I’m also encouraging my students to increase their vocabulary bank by studying their vocabulary and using the words in everyday conversation.
Students have access to a host of resources, including:
Please encourage them to sign on and utilize the resources for Language Arts and all of their other classes.
Enjoy our dash into spring.
Our students are continuing with reading and writing with the integration of technology as well. Please continue to encourage your children to read daily for at least 30 minutes.

Hi Students and Parents,
In our Language Arts Support class, we are entering the second nine weeks with a continued focus on reading and an increased emphasis on writing. Both complement each other to grow students.
Writing is very crucial to enhance communication skills and help build students’ educational confidence levels across all subjects.
Please encourage your students to read each day. They can access online libraries with this link. http://tinyurl.com/j2f2eof
Welcome to a new year,
Students are well into the new Fall Semester reading books of their choice, detailing what they’ve read on their reading logs, completing small-group assignments, interacting with instructional software, and building their vocabulary.
At Lindley, we are preparing them for a successful school year and future. Parents, we are asking that you continue to encourage them to be professional learners. And, thanks in advance for your continued support.

Hello Reading Stars,
We are concluding our semester, and we have plenty to do to end the school year on an academically high level that also includes fun-filled events.
Students have projects and end-of-the-year assignments that are still expected and that can impact their grades.
Stay focused and continue to push forward. Teaching is continuing to the very end.
Keep moving forward.
