We are continuing to work on specific reading skills in comprehension and drawing conclusions. The “Readers Journey”continues to be an important focus in class.
As you read, record your information on your Reading Log. Write the name of the book, magazine etc. that you are reading and list the number of minutes that you read that evening. I will check the Reading Logs by Friday of the week.
In class we will be finishing “An American Childhood” by Ann Dillard.
The first Science Test is this Thursday the 24th. Study your notes and Study Guide/Checklist Plus bring your calculator to the test. Check Dr. Kaht’s Blog for additional information.
We have finished pre-testing all students. Yea!
The most important homework for my Reading class is to read for at least 10-15 minutes per night from your free reading book. Reading takes practice; therefore, the more that you read, the better you are at reading. Please make the resolution to read every evening. Each student is required to have a free reading book and can earn extra points for bringing it to class daily.
