• Good day to all my wonderful students and parents,

    • Please have your child read to you every day and then talk about what was read, asking probing questions that make your child think.

    Here are a few ways that you can help your child improve their reading skills at home!

    This is part of a game called SAY SOMETHING Reading Strategy.

    1. First, have your child read about five (5) pages silently.
    2. Secondly, you read those same five pages to yourself.
    3. Thirdly, you will have them do one of the following things for each page:
      1. Make a prediction of what you think will happen based on what was read.
      2. Ask a question about what was read and have a discussion (be careful not to go off the topic).
      3. Clarify something that was not understood.
      4. Make a comment and explain what it means and how it relates to what was read.
      5. Make a connection to your life, something that was read before, or something world wide.
      6. Make an argument that includes textual support from the reading. 

    DICTIONARY WORK:   Some of our students find using a dictionary distasteful. Please help them out by insisting that they look up words that you give them. They may use www.dictionary.com Then check that they have the right definition that goes with the context the word was used in. The STAAR reading test lets students use a paper dictionary or an online dictionary.

    GENRE CARDS:  I have made flashcards for the students to use. Please copy and paste the URL to access them, then print them out:         http://www.flashcardmachine.com/2907962/2xr1
