What do I do with the reading log?
Any books that your child reads from the library, home, or that I send home should be written down on the reading log. I require each student to read for 15-20 mins. each night. Please listen to your child read and make it a fun event each day.Back to Top
What books can go on the reading log?
Anybook that is read aloud together. Not every reading time has to be your child reading to you. In fact, you are an excellent model of what good reading sounds like and your child will pick up on strategies by watching and interacting with you. Please balance the time that you read aloud and the time that you allow your child to read aloud. Back to Top
How often does the reading log need to be turned in?
I require every student to turn in one complete log per month. If you fill up a log before the end of the month you may return it to school and begin a new log. You may also print off a new log from the important documents icon on this website.Back to Top
What if transportation changes before the end of the day?
Please try to make transportation as easy as possible for your child. Changing from car rider to bus from day to day really gets confusing for the kids and it is definietly confusing for me to keep straight.Please make sure your child knows how they are getting home each day and if there needs to be a change please notify our front office and speak with them. They will make sure that your child gets the message.Back to Top
If my child is reading a chapter book how do I log it on the reading log?
If your child is reading a chapter book you may list each chapter read on the reading log, instead of each book.Back to Top
How do I know if a book is too hard for my child?
If your child misses 5 or more words on the first page of a book it is too difficult. Please return it and check out something on their level. Library books are chosen by the students and they are told to look and see if they can read the book before it is checked out.Back to Top

Lunch is at 10:55-11:15. You are always welcome to come and eat lunch with your child.

We are in our room working by 7:50am. After school: Your child will be walked to the car rider, daycare, latchkey, or bus rider destinations. If your child is a car rider or daycare they are required to sit quietly with a book to read while they listen for their name or daycare to be called. Back to Top
