Today's a BIG DAY in 1st Grade!
Student Book Selections Are Coming Home!
What is a book selection?
Why Do the Kids Select Their Books?
Book choice motivates readers, builds reading stamina, and teaches readers a skill that is necessary for life long reading -- choosing books!
Readers will be bringing home books that they can read independently, books that they may need you to read with them, or books that they may need you to read to them.
If your child brings home a guided reading group book from Mrs. Metzger, Mrs. Hay or myself, please read this book first. If time does not allow for reading group and book selection books to be read, students can check to book out again the next day. (Note: book selection books are not guided reading books, used for small group or independent lessons.)
How Often Will Book Selections Come Home?
- My reader forgets the book or the book folder at home? - The reader won't be making a new book choice until the book selection is returned ~ Sorry.
- A book gets damaged? Can we fix it? No worries!
- A book gets lost? A lost book (or a book damaged beyond repair) will need to be replaced. There will be a $10.00 charge in this case. (Many books brought home are library books and they charge a cover price replacement fee.)
