These books are to be read at home and during silent reading at school. Therefore, each child needs to bring their current book selection back and forth from home to school each day.
During silent reading time, I will be periodically checking on each student’s progress and comprehension with his/her chosen book.
At home, your child must read at least 20 minutes per night as part of their Reading Log. The reading of the Genre Program Books count as minutes for the log.
After reading each book, your child will be required to complete an activity. This activity will be filling out a specific book form, completing a story map, making a cereal book report, or giving a Book Talk. The class will receive further explanation on how to complete these activities, and I will also show them how to do a Book Talk. The Genre Program does count as part of the reading grade and effort grade. Students will be graded on the number of books read and the quality of each assignment completed.
The purpose of this program is for each child to read quality literature that he/she is interested in. This Genre program guarantees that your child will be exposed to all different genres before heading to South!
Thank you for your support. Please keep reminding your child to stay on course with the Genre Program! Help prevent procrastination! J
