     Students, be prepared to discover yourself as a reader this year in Room 28. We will be picking books that are just right, not too easy nor too challenging. Students will be increasing their comprehension skills through daily practice during Daily 3+1. My expectation is for students to read daily, at least 15 minutes.

     The first 8 days of school we will review the Daily 5, which I refer to as the Daily 3+1.  The Daily 3 are read to self, work on writing and work on word work (vocabulary) and the + 1 is read to someone which I do a lot whole group and students will do occasionally with a partner. We will not start Lesson 1 in the basal reading book the week of August 27th.
