I asked.....student answered....

What worked for you? I read daily for one hour before bed. I read as down time when I'm done with school and need a computer break.

What can you improve? I would like to find more time to read and I would like to go to the library weekly.

What can I do to support you? I need help creating a plan to find more time to read. I would also like help choosing books at my level. I really like reading about World War II and wars in general. [When asked, Carrick said he might enjoy historical fiction.)

What is my reading level?

Level: U

This level represents the results of the Fountas & Pinnell testing done during Semester 1. Students will be evaluated again in April.

Making Time to Read

Carrick expressed wanting more time to read. It might benefit Carrick if together you can create a plan that might allow him to read more in the day. If you would like my help, I'm more than happy to guide Carrick and we can meet. Here is a article with information that might help:

Gwinnett County Public Library

Carrick expressed wanting to visit the library once a week. I know how hard this can be. Here are a few options.

1. You can visit once a month. Did you know you can check out 75 books at a time?

2. Use the library's free online and digital resources, like Tumblebooks and Overdrive. Initially, Carrick will need help setting up the account information, but it should be easy after that.
