Silent Sustained Reading (SSR) in 7th Grade
10-15 minutes in each class every week
Tuesdays: Ms. Orosco
Wednesdays: Mrs. Godinho
Thursdays: Mrs. Camarena
Fridays: Mr. Tashima
We will also be reading during this time. 

This is not part of your SSR Log for Mr. Tashima. 
However, you can read your book report book. 
This is extra reading time. 
We encourage to try new genres and authors. 
To be a better reader the book should be a little challenging to read. 
You can find books in each of our classrooms, in our wonderful Akers Library, or bring a book from home. 
If you need help choosing a book, please ask us for help. 

All your 7th grade teachers are avid recreational readers which means we read for fun and find it relaxing. We love to read books, short stories, online news, magazines, and so much more!
