Yesterday was a teacher work day. I got a firm handle on all of your report cards, and I got a tiny head start on the second quarter.
Your independent reading goals are all set, I just have to enter them into the computer. Remember, you have three goals: your point goal, your accuracy goal (85%), and your book level goal. To meet all three, you will have to read 40 minutes a day at your level, and aim for 5/5 or 10/10 on every quiz. We'll have an average of 20 minutes of reading time at school each day, and your homework is 20 minutes of reading EACH NIGHT.
But you know what? This won't be hard. As I left school yesterday, I was walking through the LRC and remembering what I said about IT being your Mount to Be Read. How exciting to think of all the stories and facts that one mountain holds!
Here's to a reading championship second quarter! Let's all work to meet ALL our goals!
