minutes. They are able to read anything they want. A
parent or guardian is to sign your child's reading log
that will be located in their homework folder. We will
give them a fluency passage each Monday.This passage may
be a good resource to practice timing your child. They
will be expected to read 87 words in a minute by the end
of the year. Your child will also receive a vocabulary
study guideon Monday. They will be expected to complete
the study guides on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Our reading class is a mandated 90 minute
block that is not interrupted. Our class consist of:
We start reading class with reading our basal story in
partners. Next, I read a story to them that coordinates with our theme.
We then complete a morning message and preview our phonics. Then we spend
about 15 minutes on spelling and phonics. Our vocabulary comes next.
We love to act out our vocabulary and play many fun games with definitions and
sentences. Then we learn our skill and reading strategy. Last we go
to centers while the teachers pull small groups to read stories that correlates
to our basal story.
