Third TRIMESTER INDIVIDUAL READING PAGE REQUIREMENTS
We will have silent reading every day for 15-20 minutes. You should come to class prepared with reading material to read for at least that length of time.
You may read anything appropriate for school that you enjoy: graphic novels, magazines, comics, fiction, non-fiction.
I reserve the right to redirect you to different reading material if you spend too much time on one genre. ☺
Reading pages are 20% of your English/Language Arts grade.
You will record reading pages on THE BOOKMARK as directed, with SWBST completed on the back.
Bookmarks must be filled out completely and recorded in class log in order to receive credit. Turn it in as soon as book is finished!
