•  Students are expected to read everyday. This will help them with fluency, vocabulary, comprehension and communication skills.  

    Benefits of Reading for 20 Minutes a Day

     It is required that students log in their Reading Log's, at least twice a week, what they have read.  The following is the format for logging in Reading Log's:
     Students are to summarize the main idea and key details of what they have read. 
                                                                              Skill/Strategy Application 
     Students will select a skill or strategy that we learned in class and apply it to their independent reading text. For example, if this week we learned how to identify and define figurative phrases, students will give examples of figurative phrases within their independent reading text and explain what such phrases mean.
