Welcome to 8th Grade Reading!


I am so glad to have your child in my reading class this year!


This year is all about improving reading skills and learning ways that authors use writing to communicate.  I will be offering tutorials every Monday. 


Ways that you can help:


Reading EVERY NIGHT 30 mins or more.


Homework in my class will most likely will be reading in their library/AR book for 30 mins. I may have a few written assignments/worksheets sprinkled in, but reading nightly will be primarily the assignment. 

Here are my expectations for every student in my 8th grade classes.


Read, READ, READ! **


Work your Plan- This is the plan your child created for this school year in order to grow and be successful this new school year.


Be respectful to teacher and other students.


Work cooperatively daily to ensure that your group is growing and completing assignments.
