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.

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.
