Welcome to BMS reading! Students in my classes range from 6-8th grade. Our curriculum is called Read to Achieve. This program helps students to learn comprehension strategies that students can apply to content-area classes, particularly science and social studies. Students will read informational passages, learn to take notes from textbooks and classroom lectures, study from notes, and comprehend content-area text. Each unit has five lessons and there is an assessment at the end of each unit.
I highly suggest your encourage your child to read for at least twenty minutes each day. There are also so many amazing audio books your child can listen to or follow along to as they read. Many students find this more enjoyable than reading on their own. Personally, I am always listening to a book in the car on my commute with an app called Audible.
