**This week I have added a book to the homework. The students all have a book on his/her AR reading level. Your child should read this book nightly (about 15 min if possible) and fill out the reading log that is stuck in the book. When your child finishes, he/she will take an AR test on the book at school and choose a new one to take home. Please return the book daily so I can check on your child's progress. If you feel the book is too hard for your child, please let me know so he/she can choose a new one. If you feel that one reading of the book is not enough, please have your child reread the book over several nights. If I see your child is struggling on the AR tests, we will move your child to a lower level book. If your child is excelling, we will move up to a higher level. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
