The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
–Dr. Suess

In all the 4th grade classrooms, we are using Accelerated Reader which gives reading levels based on grade level and month in school. I encourage room 5 readers to read books that are appropriately leveled for them but also equally important to read what is enjoyable to them.

Please encourage your child to read EVERY SINGLE NIGHT at home.
Each student has a reading log in their homework folder where they log when they read at school and at home. At fourth grade, students should be reading at least 30 minutes each night but what matters most is that the children are engaged with the books every night at home.

We have time to check books at our school library with Mrs. Hale on Tuesdays.
