**Weekly Reading Response: This week students will write a written response to their book in class a a practice for their reading graph. We will be practicing how to write these reading responses so that students feel comfortable writing these responses independently.

Please see your child's binder for examples of these responses, but kindly do not remove them. Thanks!
