READING HOMEWORK CHANGES:


Beginning after the first of the year, all fourth grade students will be required to read for 20 minutes. Each student will have an assigned number of pages to read according to their fluency level. Students will read a book of their choice or teacher's assigned book. Students MUST write in their reading journal nightly answering the focus question for the day. Students will have their required number of words to read in the front of their reading journal. Students will take the number of words they are able to read in one minute and then times those words by 20. Students will need to count the words on one page and approximate how many pages the student will need to read for 20 minutes. Example: Student reads 63 words per minute. 63 words times 20 minutes = 1,260 words. Student's book has 475 words per page. Student needs to read at least 2 1/2 pages to meet their reading goal.
