Memory Verse: 

Proverbs 3:1-10 

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, 

For length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. 

Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;

   bind them around your neck;

 write them on the tablet of your heart.

So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

7 Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your produce;

then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.


                 

                         Reading

Comprehension Skill:  Questioning,Cause and Effect, Main Idea, Supporting Details, Summarizing

Book Chat Oral Report:
Each nine weeks your child will be assigned to give the class a book chat which will be an oral report on a book he/she is reading.  Your student will select his/her own book for the oral report. The book may be a work of fiction or nonfiction. Reading a passage fluently (smoothly with expression) from the book is an important part of the presentation,  so your child should avoid joke books, graphic novels, how-to books, and reference materials when selecting a book. The book does not have to be a book your child has finished reading, but it could be a book your child is currently reading.   Your child is expected to plan and practice for the oral report at home.  

Reading Log:
Students are expected to read 80 minutes a week at home this year.  Students may read a book of their choice at home during this time.  
Students will record their reading minutes in their planner with a parent signature required by the end of the week to verify the total number of minutes.

Every Monday students will receive a daily grade which will hold them accountable for the minutes read the previous week.

Accelerated Reader:     


Students will be reading AR books to reach their goals, and they will be rewarded for meeting their goals. Below you will find the link for the student and parent login.
