Every night students are required to read 20 minutes. This homework will remain the same throughout the ENTIRE school year. They will read a book in which they bring from home, pick from the library, or check out in Mrs. Kadvan's language arts class.
How do you know that I read every night?
Reading logs will be checked weekly, student conferencing will happen throughout the week, and books will be used in many ways daily in our class. We will have discussions and assessments based around the book you choose to read. Weekly, and sometimes nightly book logs will be sent home to keep you accountable. This might consist of one comprehension question or chart to fill in. You MUST complete at least one book each nine weeks to participate in our Book Bistro Projects (Book Report).
Additionally, students who finish books will be able to complete a story graphic organizer to earn a bead for their "Brag Tag" necklaces! Reading can take you on many adventures.
Get lost in a good book and learn something new!
