Dear Parent!

I want to thank you all for a great year. I appreciate all you do to help the class at home. 

 

READING is IMPORTANT- Remind your children to read all summer long for 20+ minutes each day. This will help them immensely when they return to school in August.

 

Mini Day Lunches - Remember today is a mini day and students are out at 12:25. We have brunch at 10:40. It is best if you send your child to school with a snack and have them eat at home after school. 

 

Report cards are coming home today, so have your child bring their backpacks.

 

It has been a great year and the students are ready for 3rd grade. Have a beautiful summer and see you all back at school Aug. 7.

Raptor Read - 40 book challenge.

40 Book Challenge

 

 It is best for your child to read 7 days a week for 20 minutes each night.

 

This year we will be working on building a LOVE of reading called RAPTORS READ.

 

40 Book Challenge - This year we are challenging  each student to read 40 books. 30 of them can be picture books, but 10 will need to be chapter books. Once your child has read the book and is ready to explain what their book is about, they will be able to write it on their 40 Book Challenge Log. Then, they will fill out a story map. Mrs. Payne will review it, sign their 40 Book challenge and return it to the student.

 

Reading Homework - Each night your child will bring home a "good fit book". It is their job to read their book. They can read it to you, if that helps them better understand the story.  If they are struggling, you can read it with them, but they need to be able to read it to me in order to put it on their 40 Book Challenge.

 

 ZPD  -  Your child will start by taking test to level them for reading. These levels are called ZPD - Zone of Proximal Development. This test will give your child a reading range. The lower level books are a little easier to read, on level books are in the middle, and a little more challenging books are the higher levels. Your child will get a new ZPD each trimester on their book mark.
