Code for Scholastic Book Order DGWLY- please email me or have your child tell me to send in the order.
Reading Requirement - Students need to read at least 1non-fiction and one fiction book per quarter in their lexile range. Each child has an AR point goal per quarter depending on their ability. Grades will be determined by the percentage of the goal points made. Each child should read 20 minutes per night to make their goal! Keep Reading that Non-Fiction!!
Please check Google Classroom and Teacherease with your child.
Check TeacherEase grades with your child once a week. Grades will be updated by Monday at the latest unless life takes a wrong turn on me. I do not add extra Achieve Thought Questions until the end of the quarter.
Students should be reading 20 minutes nightly! Their AR goal is set with this in mind. Please make sure they read at home. This is an important way to improve their reading skills. Practice, practice, practice- just like any other skill.
