After holding meetings with our parent homework focus group we are making some changes to our summer reading and math program. We hope that this new procedure will make the process more enjoyable and foster a love of reading for your child. This program is still mandatory and counts for 10% of your child’s first quarter grade.
Reading Kinder – 2nd grade:
Your child’s teacher will send home a calendar for the summer months. Please sign off on each day that your child reads. The goal is for your child to read 40 times over the summer.
Reading 3rd grade – 8th grade plus 10th grade:
Your child will be required to read a minimum of 1 book of their choice over the summer and fill out a brief book review. We ask that you help your child pick an appropriate book that is not too easy nor too difficult. We hope that your children will read more than 1 book and review all the books they read. We also hope that parents will review the books being reading. In the fall we will publish our very own “Oasis Good Reads” book review on the school website.
If your child chooses a book and you are not sure if it is too easy or too hard you can check the reading level here. http://arbookfinder.com
Reading 9th grade:
Online health class. All 9th grade students and their parent will receive an email from Ms. Tisdale with a link for logging into the online Health Course. One-half credit of Health is a requirement to graduate from high school. Watch for the email firstname.lastname@example.org
Math 1st grade – 8th grade:
Your child will bring home a math facts packet to be completed and returned to school on the first day of school. Remember, this is mandatory and counts as 10% of your child’s first quarter grade.
