Keep Building their Stamina!

By the end of 1st grade, students should be able to read 20-25 minutes independently. During this time they should be thinking while they read their books (making connections, asking questions, inferring). They might even reread a book. Your student should stay focused on reading during this time and not need reminders to stay on task. The reading stamina goal will increase each nine weeks in 2nd grade, so it's important to keep stamina built up over the summer.
