Read Me


Find the Lexile levels of your books:

Reading for 30 minutes each day is required (150 minutes average per week).
Your child is responsible for reading chapter books throughout the year. Trimesters 1 & 2 I require them to fill out a minimum of 2 Book Response forms that have them thinking critically through the book. Three are required in Trimester 3. This form is filled out as they read, and turned in to me. If they would like to do more than 2, I welcome it!
