I want my students to develop a love for reading. Because of this, I encourage my students to read library books and take an A.R. test over the book. I challenge them to reach a certain goal by the end of the grading period. If they are successful, I ask them to create a new goal for the next grading period. If they don’t reach their goal, we try again the next grading period.
Please help your child by making time for them to read. Right before bed is a great time!
For the first 9 weeks, I have challenged my first graders to get 5 points, and my 2nd graders to get 7 points.
Every Monday, students move their clips to show how many
points they have earned.
