Welcome to Ms. Pratt's reading class. We use the Journeys Reading Book, StoryWorks Magazine, Leveled Readers, & Chapter books in this class. My teaching style generally begins with a whole group lesson (with partner work, whole class work, & individual work incorporated) & then students break into centers (2 per day) while I meet with students in small group instruction. We usually spend about 3 days in the Chapter Book & 2 days with a StoryWorks article or Reading Book. Most of my grades come from classwork & formative assessments. I do not give tests on each story. Most of my summative assessments (or tests) in Reading are Unit tests. Generally I have a no homework policy unless students need to finish work not completed in class.
