We love to practice our spelling words and play games on http://www.spellingcity.com/zeigler
 
Encourage your child to read AR books and take tests on the computer!  We give treats for reaching point clubs!  Every test passed earns a half point.
They just need to read the book 3 times and send in a note with book letting me know they are ready and I will set them up.
I also have books in the classroom for them to read, that we read aloud in class that are AR.  
You can google AR finder and see if the book title you have is an AR book or not....
 
They will also have a log to keep up with reading time and get prizes from our Library for returning their log each Friday!! Record daily for the seven days and return each Friday!  
  Please remember to return your Library book by Friday!
