Some of our reading tests will be taken on Fridays, online using the iPads. These tests will include a comprehension test, vocabulary test, and a grammar test over the skills and story we have read that week. Sometimes, a phonics test will be given as well going over a skill we have studied throughout the week. You as parents can log in as your child to the Think Central website and check their scores. This will be the only way to see how they are doing on these tests. Our classroom textbook is also online so rereading the story at home is an option.
Scholastic Book Order
Sometimes the right book is all it takes to nurture a child's love of reading. That's why I'm pleased that our class will be participating in Scholastic Book Clubs this school year.
The Book Club flyers I'll be sending home each month are full of just-right, affordable books and Storia™ eBooks for every age and reading level.
Thank you for helping grow your child's love of reading and for supporting our class!
