NEW YEAR....NEW DECADE....NEW MINDSET....NEW GOALS!!
Richmond County has purchased a new program to help increase student reading skills as well as interest. Reading Plus is designed to increase student interest and engagement in reading as well as increase reading skills and fluency. Students in the Richmond County School System are required to have 2 hours a week of Reading Plus activities. ** This sounds like a lot, however between activities at school and home engagement students are able to exceed the minimum requirement. Reading PLUS works on mobile devices, tablets, laptops and regular PC's. Please help us make each and every student succeed by allowing them time to work on this program at home. We MUST complete 5 "see readers" per week. Parent Letters will go out this week addressing the lack of home access.
Listed below are the Standards for THIS week, Essential Questions, Learning Targets, Assignments, and Vocabulary.
