Congratulations to Margarita!

Reading A-Z

All reading levels should be completed by October 30th. When your entire grade level has completed levels, one member of the team will need to fill out your grade level Reading Level Data Google form found in your lesson plan folder in Google Drive.


Please email a copy of your reading levels to me and Jane. The reading level template was emailed to you. Please do not change the format of the spreadsheet. This will allow me to combine all students in your grade level at the end of the school year so levels can be shared with next years' teachers. Your reading levels should be saved using the following format: Eriksen 2015-2016 Reading Levels
