Daily book shopping

Book shopping has begun!





        We are fortunate to have been provided books at your child’s current reading level. These books have been earmarked for daily practice at home.

        Each day your child will go “Book Shopping” for a book to take home and read with you. Please enter the book onto the Weekly Reading log. Return the book and log each morning in the zip lock bag provided.  

        On occasion, you will also find in the zip-lock, some strategies or suggestions for you to think about when reading with your child. It is my goal to make these reading experiences meaningful for both you and your child.

       Reading fluency and comprehension need practice in order to progress.  It is expected that children will read every night, including weekends and vacations.  Children should read aloud from a book at an appropriate reading level for 15 minutes to an adult.  Talk about the story as well in order to ensure that the child is comprehending the story as it is read.

       One simple way to determine if a book is an appropriate challenge is to use the Five Finger Rule.   While reading one page of the book, count the errors when reading.  If there are 5 or more errors, the book is too challenging.

     Children should also have the opportunity to have an adult read aloud to them each night.  This additional 15-20 minutes spent with your child will enhance reading skills, instill a joy of reading and provide wonderful memories as children grow to become young adults.


This year there is a weekly Reading Log where you should record the daily reading.  The Log is due each Monday.  A new log will be sent home on Mondays as well.
