Students will be responsible for reading independently throughout the school year. They will recieve reading logs each month, and the log is to be completed and turned in by the last Friday of that particular month. The first independent reading log will be due on Friday, September 28th. Students will recieve their first log paper the week of August 20th.
I will try to get the students into the school library at least twice per month to renew and check out new books. Students may even bring books from home and from the local library. Does your child read on their device? I will also allow students to read books from their devices; however, I reserve the right to check their device each time they read to determine whether they are on appropriate content or not.
What genre should they read? Whatever they like! Fantasy, mystery, manga, nonfiction, realistic fiction, etc. I don't really care what genre they are reading just that they ARE reading!
Reading logs will consist of giving the book's name, author, and genre. Students will also need to "log" the times that they read, how many pages they read, and discuss something about that section of reading such as character development, plot development, setting, predictions, questions they may have or even connections to their own life.
