Reading Respose Journal
All students are required to keep a Reading Response Journal.
The Reading Response Journal will contain responses from independent reading and will be graded each month.
The Reading Response Journals should have responses about the reading the student is doing out of class, independently.
Each student has been given a sheet of questions they should use to complete the reflections.
Is your child telling you they already read during Learning Lab?
That is not enough!
They should be reading at home every night.
At Pioneer Middle School, we are trying to create a culture of readers: It is crucial they are reading both at school AND at home. We encourage you to help us - help your child schedule at least HALF AN HOUR for uninterrupted READING time, 6-7 nights per week. Your student should also be responding in the journal at least every other night.
Remind them to dig deep with their responses by using evidence from their books. NYS will be looking for TEXT-BASED responses on the State Test.
