Hope you are enjoying your first few weeks of school.
We have started the week with Florida iReady Baseline Assessments on Monday and will most likely continue through to Friday. We should have the student's scoring done by the following week and at that point I will be giving each student a notecard with their reading level on it. I will instruct them to tape it to the inside of their Reading Composition Notebook. This is to help them choose books and free reading material on their level. I require all my students to do 30 minutes of free reading of their choice Monday - Thursday night. They also need to complete a 1 page reading reflection in their Reading Comprehension journal after reading. This will serve as their Reading class homework.
This classroom website is a work in progress as of now, but I will be updating it every Friday and it will be a tool for staying up to date on our classwork, projects, and homework.
Please send back the packet of forms you should have received at open house. If you didn't receive the packet of forms please let me know and I will send one home with your student.
