Young 5s/kindergarten:

Read for 15 minutes. I will create a simple graph they can color to show me the number of books they read. I will also ask for a reading response such as drawing a picture to tell me about their favorite book they read. (as the year progresses it could change to draw a picture of a character from the story or draw and label something you read from an informational book.

I will send home different books weekly in the bags. (They are reading the pictures, but can also look for letters we are learning as well as sight words introduced.)

We will have a Top Reader of the Week who picks from the treasure box and gets their picture on the blog. 

  1. Reading bag with 5 books (changed weekly)
  2. Simple graph to color number of books read.
  3. Reading response notebook sent home in the bag. ( I will cut and glue what the response for the night will be)
  4. Reading for 15 minutes daily
