Student Book Publishing

The final draft of the student books (handwritten or typed) were due today,1/11/16. It seems that we have worked out the kinks to the website, so your child should go to the site below and type in their book into the site. If for some reason the site does not allow them to save their book, DO NOT type it over. I will see if I can arrange a time at school for them to log on to the site.

The deadline is quickly approaching so it will be in your child's best interest to complete this assignment ASAP. I will be sending home order forms tomorrow so that you can order your child's book if you wish.

This project counts as a summative assessment. That means it will be weighted in the 45% category for grading.

All students should have their passwords and login information as I gave this to them on paper and in class today.

Storia School Reading Program

All students should have logged into their Storia account by this point. We use Storia to supplement our regular reading curriculum. I assign students reading material on daily and/or weekly basis. Therefore, your child will have homework every night. In addition to assignments given by me, students are encouraged to add books to their personal bookshelves and read for pleasure. It is imperative, however, that students complete the quizzes at the end of every selection or book that they read. Storia contains several tracking tools that we both can use to monitor your child's participation and progress. This program is not optional as utilizing it will help your child's reading comprehension skills. Students were provided with their login information.

Please email me with any questions or concerns.
