Reading Reports

Each week, I post a video reading report to encourage the kiddos to read, read, read. I also try to give a mini lesson on reading as well as advertise some new books! Check out this site to view them: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1oL50Afze0xBT1uUKBnAWKzBT3oncICwe

New Page!


As you can see, we have a new page. I have listed some neat reading websites that you family might be interested in trying at home. If you have any favorites that you would like added because other families may enjoy, please send me an email at hcooprider@iwcs.k12.va.us

Happy playing...and reading of course! :)

Update: Read for the Record!


We made cats and 1 duck in Mrs. Scott's Class!

Same in Mrs. Miller's Class! 

Since Quackers didn't pick a duck or cat, neither did Mrs. Newman's class! 
  

And then the staff dressed up! What fun! 



Finally, check out our bulletin board! I guess people like cats better! :)

Read for the Record Day

On Thursday, October 19th, the entire school is reading to Quackers!

Please participate and dress up as a cat OR a duck! 
Stay tuned for videos and pictures! :) 



K-3 BOOKSHELF

Make sure you are reading 30 minutes daily at home for reading! If you want your child to be a stellar reading, they need to practice! Just like you practice for sports, we have to practice to learn. 
Don't forget to log the 15 minute steps of reading you do to get credit! 

 
Make sure you are using Bookshelf. Kindergarten-3rd grade students have a log in and password so that they can read ARC books on a tablet!!!! :)
