Student Led Conferences

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend or listen to a student led conference at home. I know the class enjoyed sharing progress and goals with you!

25/100 Book Challenge

Our class is happily working on their book challenges! I love that students are so interested in beginning to explore different genres.

We have a graph in our classroom (which you can see below) to track everyone's progress.

Please be sure to keep this reading log in your child's binder so we can see when to move his/her book icon up. Also, remember that this book challenge is for the 15-16 school year. You can count any book (over 100 pages for the 25 Book Challenge) that they have read this school year.

Thanks so much for your support!
