We are working with the Common Core Modules this year. You can follow what we're doing on; www.engageny.org
Sept. 9 - 20 Module 1: Unit 1: Lessons 1 - 5
Students are expected to read for their Book Logs every night at home. Even 15 - 20 minutes would help. We have set goals for each month which are located on the backs of their Book Logs. We do not have much time in class for independent reading, so we hope this can be done at home. You can help your child by reading with them. You can read a page, then they can read a page. Or they can read to you and you can help with words they don't know. Any time spent with your child and a book is always a beneficial experience.
Books should be at least 75 - 100 pgs. and at the student's level. Books may include chapter books, magazines, informational books and newspapers. Some books read in class will also count
