                           Mrs. Williams's Read 180 class



                            Welcome to Read 180 with Mrs. Williams    


    Happy New Year everyone and welcome to a new trimester! Thank you for visiting my class page.  I'm happy to report that we are beginning a new workshop too.  Workshop 6 will keep us very busy accomplishing several goals as we introduce a new topic.   The reading comprehension skills we will focus on are: story elements, finding text evidence and evaluating responses.   The craft and structure skills we will cover include: point of view, similies, suspense, tone and text structure.   In writing, 5th grade will be working on gathering reference materials to write informational reports on a specific topic and 4th grade will be writing opinion essays.  I can't wait to see your progress for the second trimester. 


    Important reminder:  Reading Logs are a must.  For now, the only homework that is required is your 20 minutes of nightly reading Monday through Thursday. I know many of you are involved in after school activities and sometimes getting to complete your nightly reading can be a problem.  You can always read on Friday night or over the weekend to make up any nights you may have missed.  This shows me that you are taking your studying seriously and are making an effort to become strong readers.  Research tells us that students’ daily reading practice of 20 minutes will continue to strengthen their skills in all domains.  So please, keep up those logs!
