Greetings from Room 109!

News from Mr. Bandura, English Language Arts teacher

Off and running!

We are really off to a great start this year! Your children have been great, and I'm very thankful to be their teacher this year. I just wanted to give you a quick update on class happenings and important dates.

Homework

Here's the most important thing I can tell you about homework for this year; if your child is going to grow as a reader, they should be reading their AR book fifteen to twenty minutes a night all year. It doesn't matter if they read at home, or on the bus, or during resource period, or anywhere else. If they can't read every night, then two to three hours a week should equate pretty well. They just need to read. I highly recommend that students read books that are a good fit for them, that they actually enjoy reading.
