This Week

Hello Families,
Have a wonderful summer. See you all in the fall. For my incoming 3rd graders, you can check here in late August to see a message just for you.

This Week's Objectives



Under construction for next year. 

Finding Just Right Books

Basically this is how it is taught:
1. Choose a book based on interest- read the back.
2. Do the "5 finger test" which means you read a random page in the book, (preferably a whole page) and count how many times you either come across a word you don't know, or can't pronounce. If you have only 2 or 3 fingers up, great. If you have 4 or more- too hard. If you have 2 or less, too easy.
3. Listen to the way the book sounds either out loud or in your head- are you stumbling, stuttering, stopping and starting, or are you reading smoothly, hear the characters voices, understanding what is going on.
4. Check the range or level. It should be in your range. If it is in your range, #2 and #3 will probably back it up.
5. Read the first chapter to see if you still like it, and are still reading it well.

Check out books your are unsure of, either through me or through these websites:
