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

What worked for you? I read 10-15 minutes before bed.

What can you improve? Maybe visit the library and read after I finish my school work.

What can I do to support you? Ideas for reading 15 pages a day.

What is my reading level?

Level: T

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

Reading doesn't just happen. We have to schedule it in as a part of day. Here's an article you might find useful about making time to read. Morgan would benefit from having a set time to read everyday.

The Post-It Strategy

Sometimes it helps when readers have a visual of where they need to stop. Before reading, Morgan can count 12-15 pages and mark the end with a post-it. She can read until she reaches the post it. If she can't read it all in one sitting, then she knows she needs to pick up the book again until she's done.

Gwinnett County Public Library

Here is a way to get your hands on books without ever needing to leave your house.

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.
