5th Grade Reading:

I have sent home a reading log to help students keep themselves accountable as we reach our goal for the 1st nine weeks. This reading log will also be counted as a grade as they turn them in each Friday. Parent signature is required in order for the grade to be given. Reading goal time for each week is 140 minutes- in order to reach that goal a total time of 35 minutes must be done from Monday-Thursday. Students will bring back the reading log page every Friday and turn that in to me.

We have also started reading “Tuck Everlasting” in class. Students will be answering some chapter response questions and going over some new vocabulary words during class. Students that do not finish this work in class will take it for homework and be turned in the following day.
We will also be reviewing for the SAT test next week. Students will complete some worksheets from the Scoring High workbooks.

3 Chapter books/Novels
