Got questions about why students choose their own books and read in class and at home? Check out the middle school sections in this report.

Students and parents:  The cornerstone of reading workshop is sustained independent reading. We read in class, and students are expected to read at least 30 minutes every single night of the year, 7 days a week. For an average reader, that amount of time equals roughly 20 pages of reading. Obviously, reading speeds differ from student to student, so the TIME spent is more important than the page count. This time commitment may get tricky when rehearsals and sports begin, but it is vital that the nightly reading take place. Parents, to help these young readers, please help them find a quiet, comfortable place to read. Snacks and positive words of encouragement are a bonus! Thanks!
