We're Riding the Reading Wave in Room 18!
Ride the Reading Wave!

SURF's Up in Room 18!  Students need to read for 30 minutes at their AR Level each night. Once they finish reading an AR book, they need to take an AR Test in class during our daily SURF Time, or on Fridays during our Computer Time. If they pass the test with a score of 80% or higher, they will receive a sticker on their AR Surfboard. Students also need to work toward their AR Point Goals for each marking period. The ____ marking period is from _____________.  Students read in class each morning at their AR Level.  They are able to check out books from our class library daily.  If your child needs something to read, remind him/her to check out a book or two. It's Super Uninterrupted Reading Fun! Let's all try to reach our goals! 



The Secret Word

The new Secret Words are At Home LearningWrite the words on a piece of paper along with your child's name and parent signature.  Have your child hand me the paper, and he/she will receive a special prize. Ssshhh! Be sure to keep it a secret. I am trying to find out how many people are checking out our web page.
