The first graders are already learning new words and are encouraged to read to increase word recognition and fluency. A few days a week your child will bring home this reading log folder. Please listen to your child read a book that is sent from school or the book can even be from home. A parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or any adult can listen to the story that the child reads. After reading, the child will complete a short report about the book. Include the following information in the report:
*title of story
*one or more sentences telling what the book was mostly about
*draw a picture to tell about the book
Finally return the reading log with the date, title of the book, and signature to school with the book report inside the reading log folder. Please return the reading log folder the following school day since your child will have opportunities to read and record book reports at school.
Our class goal is to read 1,000 books by the end of the school year. If we are able to reach the goal, Mrs. Jackson has agreed to partake in an adventure. You can ask your son/daughter what will happen to Mrs. Jackson if we read 1,000 books.
As individuals, the students have a reward as well. If your child reads and completes the number of book reports below, he/she will have the opportunity to throw a pie in the teacher, assistant, or parent’s face. The day will be towards the end of the school year around 2:00 p.m.
50 books and book reports- Mrs. Berg
75 books and book reports-Mrs. Headding
100 books and book reports-Mrs. Berg & Mrs. Headding
_________ books and book reports-Parent’s Face (If you would like participate and set a goal for child above 100.)
Thank you for helping your child!
