Welcome to Miss Hawkins’ Class Page!
What is the last book you read that made you laugh? Why read 20 minutes a day?
Materials needed for class EVERY DAY:
Grades: Failing grades may be corrected to a 70%.
Homework: Students will begin bringing a short story with questions home each Monday, due Tuesday. Strategies must be shown for a score of 80% or above.
If your child reads for 20 minutes, three days during the school week, he/she will receive an extra credit grade of 100% for that week. A note with your signature is all that is required.
Reading Strategies we use to help comprehension of any text:
Before Reading the Passage
1. Read the title, skim and scan for graphs, tables, photos, and captions.
After Reading the Passage
3. Read the selection TWICE.
4. Place and “x” or a check ON the word that makes the answer “a lie” or “the truth.” Do not place it on the letter of the answer, place it on the WORDS that make that answer correct or not. This makes you think through each answer carefully.
5. Write the paragraph/sentence number where you found the answer next to the question. P4
