March is Reading Month Update
Don't forget, if you read books at home with your child, and feel they understand the book very well, they can often take an AR quiz on that book, too. You can either send in the book, or the name of the book on a note. You can check to see if your book is an AR book by going to ARbookfind.com .
Of course, we don't have to take a test on a book for it to be enjoyable or beneficial. However, many students love to take AR quizzes. I have volunteers coming in to listen to students read almost every day! We are very fortunate to have such great support for your children. Please let me know if you would like to volunteer, or if you would like to come in and read a favorite book to the class. We would love to have guest readers!
So far students have read over 150 books altogether, and totaled over 52,000 words as a class- just on AR books alone! This is fantastic! Way to go Mrs. Hawkins' Class!
Words of the week
I will send home some work to practice on Wednesday and Thursday night. Additionally, we are spending our math time this week reviewing these skills each day.
