In Unit 1, Building a Reading Life, students will explore ways to make their reading the best it can be. We will take a reading pre-assessment to set goals and to track our progress in the areas of:
Ideally, your child is reading a 'Just Right' book every evening for at least 25-30 minutes.
Ask your child about what he/she is reading. Can they tell you about the main characters' feelings/traits? Can they make detailed predictions about what may come next in the story? Can they summarize or retell what they've read?
Remember, reading IS thinking. So, the more we think about what we read, the stronger we become as readers!
