The Reading Room

Welcome to Trimester 1 of the Reading Specialist Program

Off to a Great Start!!!

It was so exciting to begin reading classes this week. I have really enjoyed getting to know all of your children. This week we played an ice breaker to learn more about each other. Each student completed an interest inventory sharing their favorite activities, games and books with me. Finally, we explored the books in my classroom and chose our first text to begin reading.

The Battle of the Books-BOB

Students in fourth and fifth grade are gearing up for the Battle of the Books competition. Ten books were selected for this year's challenge. You can see the titles below. Although third graders are not part of the competition, they do get to watch the finals and they really enjoy the experience. All students in UE can read or listen to these wonderful titles. Please consider downloading the BOB texts for your kindle or ipad. You can also listen to the books with your child as audio books. This is a fantastic opportunity to expose your child to a variety of genres.

Please visit the ASD library website (below) for more information about each book. There is a Battle of the Books tab at the top of the Elementary page.
