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.
