Your First Grader brought home a yellow packet last week informing you all about March is Reading Month. In addition, they brought home a green packey of WEEKLY Reading Logs that will be used throughout the month. *These will replace our normal monthly reading logs*. Please continue to keep these in the back pocket of their Red Folders so we keep consistency.
I will collect these every WEDNESDAY during the month of March. Please total your student's minutes from the week AND sign the bottom of the reading log in order to be included in the competition. Get in the game and READ!

Reading Response Page
Starting this week, your child will be coming home with a little something extra in their reading bag, a Purple reading thinking page. This page will cover various topics that help students organize their thoughts while reading and help them understand the text. Some of this worksheet will be filled out during our reading groups, but the rest will be sent home to complete. These purple pages should be kept in their reading bags and I will collect them when I meet with their groups the following week. Thanks for your support with our growing readers!
