Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Shirey

 There are many parts to our reading class: whole group instruction, small group  instruction, independent and collaborative reading practice, and computer work. If your student is assigned Reading Plus, time is given to complete the work in class so that I can monitor and make sure, when needed, your student is using the appropriate reading strategy to help him or her work through a challenging piece of text or vocabulary exercise. Reading Plus is due at the end of class on Friday (unless a student was absent).  Some students may use Achieve 3000 or System 44 as it may better address their reading needs.  During the second quarter, students may work on the vocabulary section of Reading Plus if needed at home to catch up. Students should also be studying their vocabulary at home this quarter from their guided reading piece.  Our first quiz for the third nine weeks in January 17, 2020. 
Students have 25 Readers this quarter and 20 Vocabulary from Reading Plus to finish by March 13, 2020.

We are down to our last box of tissues. If you are able to donate a box a tissues to the classroom, it would be much appreciated. 

Extra credit for periods 2,4,5, and 6
As many students are reading novels for their language arts teachers, the extra credit my reading class will not be a novel project this quarter.  This first extra credit opportunity is due Jan. 27, 2020, and is explained on the Google Classroom Assignment page.
