Book reports (written report and prop) are due the last Tuesday of each that doesn't have a major vacation.
Type of Book
Genre: This includes animals, realistic fiction, non-fiction, biography, mystery and fantasy. Please try to read a variety of genres. We will have six reports during the year.
Length: Most students should be reading a chapter book. If your child struggles with reading, he/she may check with me to see about reading a picture book. As the year progresses, I can suggest some chapter books that are manageable for the struggling reader.
Readability: Books should be within your child's independent reading level. Your child has a paper in the homework section of his/her binder that reflects his/her performance results at school. Although you may read some of the book with your child, it is important for your child to do the majority of the reading to help strengthen his/her skills.
