Students are writing monthly reading goals to help them focus on how they can improve their reading.  The overall class goal is to know what to do when students come to a word they do not know.  We are learning strategies to help us read words we do not know.  


Congratulation to these 5th graders for meeting their October Reading goals.  They are Reading Room Trailblazers!

The Reading Success Room supports Kindergarten through 5th grade students and classroom teachers in reading instruction at Onalaska Elementary School.  We are excited to see students improve in their reading skills and strategies.  We celebrate improvement for each student with regular progress monitoring assessment.  Look for new pictures of  student's learning, growth and improvement in their reading skills.

Check out the hikers on our trail working to achieve monthly reading goals. Students who meet their monthly goals will become a "trailblazer" and move their hiker to the hallways bulletin board. We'll assess next week to see what kids are "Reading Room Trailblazers". Stay Tuned!


The goal of the Reading Success Room is to develop and grow a love for reading in all students!  We want students to love reading, whatever their level or ability and to value the enjoyment they receive when reading a good book!
