We will be working in a new reading series this school year. Each week will have two stories. One is called the anchor text. It is the main reading story and we will work with that story on Monday and Tuesday. The second story is a supporting text. We will work with it in class on Wednesdays and show connections with skills on Thursdays. On Friday of each week, we will test on the skills that were covered and the vocabulary that was used throughout the week. Your child will have what is called a fresh read on their test each Friday. They will still get to AR test on the reading story they read at home.
We will begin with the first pair of stories in our reading book and move throughout the book for the rest of the school year. Please look in your child's weekly work folder each Monday for a letter home with the title of our stories on it, the spelling list, and the vocabulary words.
