    grade on the first attempt to show his/her level
    of mastery.

    original grade.

    reteach the skill to attempt mastery.

Work Completion/ Make Up Work

    assignments in class. No students will be allowed

    experiences that cannot be sent home with a
    friend or neighbor. We dont normally have a lot
    of paper pencil activities. Unless he/she will
    be absent three or more days.

Our Philosophy of Education
REACH HIGH! THINK BIG! WORK HARD! HAVE
FUN! DONT give up! Everybody Makes Mistakes
17
Reading
  • Reading Volume Why does it matter?
  • If our goal is for children to grow as readers,
    the one single thing they most need is time to
    read. Dr. Lucy Calkins (director of the
    largest reading/writing research institute in the
    country).
  • Research on reading volume
  • Krashen (2004) found that students who read more,
    do better on comprehension tests.
  • Guthrie, et. Al. (2004) found that reading volume
    predicted reading comprehension scores.

18
Reading Continued
  • Our FOCUS Increase of self monitored reading
    providing evidence of fiction nonfiction
    reading in written response.
  • Goal Minimum of 250 pages per week- average 5th
  • grader six hours
  • Six hours is the minimum your child should
    read. This includes time they read in school.
  • 250 pages 5 days 50 pages each school
    day
  • 250 pages 7 days approx. 36 pages each
    day (even weekends!)
  • Any questions/concerns.. Please contact Mrs.
    Clinkscales.
