Scholastic Book Orders

Get your summer book orders in! They have great deals at only $1 a book.

Be sure to let me know if you want me to keep a certain book a SECRET from your child if it is a birthday or holiday gift.

You'll need my class code the first time you sign up: LRB4F

Find the Right Level of Books for Over Summer!

It's a good idea to get one or two levels below their reading level (just for fun, builds confidence, can work on expression) and a few levels above their level to grow into and challenge them.

Reading is the Most Important Homework

The most important homework you do each night is to READ!

The other homework assigned is meant as an extension of learning, daily good habits, and building responsibility.

Students will keep 3-4 books inside their Guided Reading Bag at all times and I will rotate the oldest one out as we get a new book each week. The Book Log inside the Guided Reading Journal is for Teacher Use Only, please.

Please initial the DAILY folder every day. RED FRIDAY FOLDERS go home every Friday. Please read, sign and return all important papers the following Monday.
