Oral Reading Practice

Your child has a green folder that is labeled Reading Folder.  Inside you will find a sheet to record your child's oral reading practice.  I would like the readers to select a book that they can read, but that is a bit challenging. If your reader is reading chapter books, a normal chapter usually works well.  Picture books are fine, and offer an opportunity to practice fluency and expression.  Don't be afraid to ask questions of your reader about what is going on in the story.  This will help in comprehension. Every night that your child reads 15 to 20 minutes out loud to someone, please date, write the title of the book read, and sign that it was done. Each child can have one line completed each day. The child should bring the folder every day, and I will stamp if reading was done.  When they reach 12 nights of reading, they will earn 50 cents toward the next paycheck!  I will put a new sheet in at that time.  Please leave the old sheets in, as we will be counting the books we have read.  When we reach 2,000 books we will celebrate with a pizza party!
