We will be using the Daily 5 and Guided Reading for our literacy framework and program. The goal of the Daily 5 is to help students gain stamina and become independent readers. The components of the Daily 5 are read to self, read to a partner, word work, listening to reading, and writing. Guided reading helps to ensure that students are reading at their individual level and helps to build confidence and fluency in their reading. Students will also be using the program i-Ready, which gives students reading passages and comprehension questions at their individualized level. Reading is incredibly important and anytime spent reading with your child at home, will only help your child become a better reader, as well as assist them with the Third Grade Guarantee.
