DEAR Reading Program





Students are expected to read for "DEAR" at least 20 minutes each day at home. Time will be given in class each day for DEAR(Drop, Everything, and  Read) and students may read books of their choice from the class library, media center, or home, but they should be chapter books and must be approved by me before reading. I will approve most books, but want to check the reading level so it isn't too hard or too easy. Students are required to read 20 (2,000 pages)DEAR books each semester. Their DEAR grade will count for a portion of their Reading grade.  Reading independently every night from a book at their level is the most important thing they can do! Parents I would also like to see you take some time out of your busy schedules to read to your child from a book that is just above their reading level. This will introduce your child to new vocabulary, and they will be able to see how an adult (fluent reader) reads. If you are able to do this your child will grow as a reader significantly.
