Vocabulary is embedded within the reading units. New words will be learned each week.

Your child's grade will be through their notebook responses, teacher conferencing on their books, IRLA, short quizzes on skills, projects and unit tests.

Advanced Reading Challenge (ARC) This challenge is for all students who love to read and want to be challenged. Students will read a high quality chapter book and complete a project on the book. They will share their project with the class and chart their books in a binder. For every 5 projects completed successfully they will earn a prize.
