READING AT HOME
Is reading part of your family's daily routine? Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day. Reading takes practice. Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

E.L.A. READING LOG
*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals. Can you exceed the expectation?
