Reading Expectations and Unit Overview 


*** Starting in January***

New Reading Expectation:

·         Students will read 2 books in a three week time period. 

·         Students will use a calendar to record the pages they read.  This calendar will require a parent signature before the notebook check. 

·         A book that is over 500 pages is considered 2 books.  Any book that will be counted as 2 books needs to be approved by me. 

·         Students will complete ½ page of thinking every day.  Some thinkingsy we have learned. Look in the Rubrics and Other Documents tab for samples.  

·         Notebook checks will be every three weeks and will be posted in th will be done on a specific topic assigned in class and other will be a free choice of any stratege classroom also listed below.

·         During notebook check days, I will be looking for the completion of two books and the amount of thinkings that were done. Thinkings will only be counted if they show evidence that the student is working a specific skill.  These skills can be found on the website.  Individual thinkings that were assigned in class will also be graded separately for accuracy.
