Make sure your child is reading at least 20 minutes each night.  We are reading Charlotte’s Web.  The students will have a reading assignment each night.  Please make sure your child has read the assigned pages and written the summary on the nightly reading log.  You need to sign it showing that your child has read.
 
Your child should have read, tested, and passed an AR test for at least threebooks for this  nine weeks of the 20 Book Challenge.
 
There will be a test on the Text Features of Nonfiction, Thursday, November 30.  You will find the study sheet below.  One has also been sent home with your child.
