Reading Homework

January 14th, 2013 by dvannimwegen

Our  Home Reading Logcounts as 1/3 of the grade.  Please have your student write down what they read and sign it.  The 20 minutes of reading per day may include homework reading for other classes.  You may also read to your student or have them read with a family member, etc.   Students require 10 points from Reading Counts Quizzes  each quarter, which will count on their comprehension grade, so it’s really important to keep them up-to-date on their Home Logs.  Please remember to pick up new supplies like pencils and lead for your students.

Reading Logs

November 11th, 2012 by dvannimwegen

We are completing Reading Logs in class during the week, however, students should be reading 20 minutes each night at home for practice. It is especially helpful if a parent reads with the student to help with new vocabulary and checking for comprehension.  You may use Mrs. V’s Online Reading Record to record what you have been reading for the week at the following link:

Reading Logs due on Monday

November 11th, 2012 by dvannimwegen

Read for 20 minutes each day with a parent.  This may be homework reading, reading to a younger sibling, or a parent reading to the student.  Parents should have the student practice retelling what has been read, practice telling events in sequence, discuss vocabulary, talk about characters, and make connections to personal experiences or other text or media.
