I will be sending home a reading homework packet. It will be sent home every Monday and will be due two weeks later on a Friday. This packet focuses on reading fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, summarizing, and offers extension activities for students who find the topic interesting. This will be a year long project and will focus on 5 different genres of reading. I'm very excited about this program and hopefully the kids will be too!!! Happy reading!
