This year we are utilizing the Pearson ReadyGEN Literacy Program.

ReadyGEN is an integrated and well-balanced approach to reading and writing instruction for Grades K-6 classrooms. Authentic texts with modeling and teacher-directed activities drive learning and motivate readers. Students read authentic literary and informational texts. Instruction focuses on reading, writing, speaking, and listening in response to authentic texts.

Reading is so important!  It is an expectation that each student have a silent reading book, at their reading level, in class every day. Students should also read for a minimum of 15 minutes each night.  There are many ways to practice reading!  Students may read to themselves, a parent, or a sibling - or be read to by an enthusiastic reader! Reading materials can vary from books to magazines to newspaper articles and more! Reading levels are determined, in part, by Lexile scores, which can be found on your child's AIMs report.
