DAILY 5:

Listen to Reading:  Students hear examples of fluent reading during this choice which helps them learn more words, helping them become better readers.

Read to Self:  It is extremely important for students to practice reading each day.  Research shows that when students are allowed to choose the books they want, at the level they are at, reading becomes a habit and becomes more enjoyable.

Read to Someone:  This choice allows students to practice strategies and work on fluency and expression when reading.

Work on Writing:  The best way for students to become better writers is for them to practice each day.

Word Work:  Spelling is an essential foundation for writers.  This choice allows students extra time each day to practice their weekly Spelling lists and sight words.

 

CAFE:

Comprehension:  I understand what I read.

Accuracy:  I can read the words.

Fluency:  I can read accurately with expression and understand what I read.

Expanding Vocabulary:  I know, find, and use interesting words.

 

HOMEWORK:  Each week students will have a Read Every Day Folder/Bag with a book and a reading log.  Please fill out the reading log each day and read with your child for a minimum of 10 min.  Inside this bag there are further instructions and questions you may ask your child when reading.
