January Reading Logs and AR Goals
1, January Reading Logs/Reflections:
I am aware that many children read books over the winter break that they had hoped to use towards the THREE reading reflections they are required to complete each month. However, the books that they are to reflect upon should be read in school (for the most part) during the month of January. However, I will allow students to complete AR tests on the books that they already read to help their scores on Accelerated Reader.
2. AR Goals:
If your child reads 3 books, takes 3 corresponding AR quizzes, and scores a passing grade on their AR quizzes by the end of each month, they will receive a dress down day at the beginning of the following month for reaching their AR goal :)
Friday, January 15 - Science Test, Spelling Test, Reading Weekly Test, HW Packet due
