Our main focus in reading this year is to become fluent readers, and to be able to read and understand on our own reading level! We accomplish this through a variety of ways. First of all, we choose "just right books" - just the right level for them during independent reading time. We will have a mini-lesson before they read each day and then practice what they learn. Also, we will be using RAZ-Kids this year on their Chromebooks. These are books that are on their level from different genres. Lastly, students will complete a cold-read each week. I will review the skill that is tested, but they are responsible for reading the passage and questions on their own.
