Since reading at home is so important for personal enjoyment, growth, and development, our main weekly homework will consist of responding to personal reading selections students make.

The goal is to practice reading closely for evidence to support thinking. Response choices are provided for focus and guidance:
Students will be writing response letters to reinforce friendly letter format, handwriting, conventions, and spelling. Be sure to access the playlist of videos showing students and families expectations as they increase. How to “level up” is explained in each video.
