Intensive reading is a year long class of intensive instruction, that primarily focuses on reading strategies, vocabulary, and writing skills. These skills are the same skills that students will be working on in Language Arts, however, this class will be student paced. Which means that I will be pacing lessons to make sure that students are mastering the material before moving on.
Tutoring for additional mastery will be offered after school. Days and times TBA.
AR:Students should have two books checked out. Students are given opportunities most days of the week to read and AR test as well as check out books when they have finished testing. Students should try to achieve their point goal by earning a few points each week. Deadline days are posted below. If your child is reading a large book, then they should be sure to get approval by me. If a student waits until the last week to test on a "big book" and fails the test, he or she is in jeopardy of not making their goal and earning a poor grade for the marking period.
