What we are working on


What your child is doing in reading.

This week we are starting our Lucy Calkins unit with how books want to be read, reading with voices that match the actions in the texts, and retelling important events from stories. The students are also learning how to read with a partner, both in class and with another reading buddy class in the school. Reading takes many forms and we practice them each day, reading alone, reading with others, listening to reading, and more. It is important that students also practice reading at home to strengthen their skills and support what occurs in the classrooms each day.
