is in year seven of American Reading Company's 100 Book Challenge.
Students read two steps in school and two steps at home daily. One step
is 15 minutes. If students are absent, they do their best to read four
steps per day in order to stay on target. Students may read their 6 weekend steps in any combination.
We are also beginning a new whole group reading program called, "Raising the Standards Through Chapter Books. The C.I.A. Approach." We will gather on the rug daily to read a multiple copy chapter book. Students use the composition notebook for notes and writing about the text.
