Course Information and Expectations
In my class we will be working to achieve mastery of Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Writing. In addition, I use cooperative learning in all my academic areas along with interactive notebooking.
In class we will be working on becoming masters of reading. This will help your child get ready for the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) in 3rd grade this year. This year there will be no homework EXCEPT Reading 20 minutes DAILY! Why? See graphic below. There will be a reading tracking sheet in your child's daily folder for you to sign EACH DAY to ensure your child has read 20 minutes.
Reading is key to success!
