This week reading bags will go home! The bag will have books that are appropriate for your child's reading level. Students are placed in a group of similar readers and each group will have a different day that their bag will be sent home and returned (this day is written in the front pocket). Inside you will find a packet with tips for reading with your student (keep these items at home for your reference). You will also find pictures of our secret stories (keep these in the folder and return weekly). We have circled the ones that we have learned together in class... ask your child to tell you the story.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
