Here are some of the things to be looking for during the year in regards to reading:

Every Monday they should be bringing home their reading books and a reading response notebook. All 4th graders are required to read the week's story to an adult. Once they have read the story, please sign the reading response notebook and your child should answer the assigned question. I ask that their answer be at least 2 sentences long.

We will also be doing small group activities throughout the year. Periodically, your child may be bringing home a smaller book with an activity I have assigned. These books will enhance the strategies that we have discussed during the week.

Some other strategies we will be working on throughout the year will include comprehension, making connections, vocabulary, and fluency. If you see that your child is struggling with any of the concepts we are working please let me know and we can discuss some strategies to help your child.
