  • My email is habhabn@dearbornschools.org
  • We completed NWEA testing in math and reading this week. If your child completed them, I highlighted their new score in green in their assessment folder. Please ask your child how they did. They need to continue practicing on Khan Academy using their new RIT score. They will take the NWEA test again in the spring.
  • We completed all DRA testing. Your child’s new score has been highlighted in blue on their DRA graph.

If they start reading for 20 minutes per night in Kindergarten, by the end of 6th grade, Student A will have read for the equivalent of 60 school days, Student B will have read for 12 school days, and Student C will have read for 3. (Nagy and Herman, 1987.)

Want to be a better reader? Simply, read!

Why read for 20 min.?

  • All 5th graders in Ms. Habhab’s class will be expected to read at least 40 books this year during independent reading at home.
  • You will be reading 40 (or more) books this year (beginning 9/7/17) and keeping track of the titles and genres on your Reading List sheet.
  • You will be reading from a variety of genres in order to explore books you might not ordinarily read, and to develop an understanding of literary elements, text features, and text structures.
  • Books that have been read (or will be read) in class cannot count, even if the student re-reads the book.
  • Students may ask the teacher, librarian, classmates, or their families for recommendations, but there are no specific title requirements
  • Any book with more than 200 pages will count as 2 books.
  • All books are selected by the student.
  • Select good fit books at your reading level. Use your DRA book graph as your guide and NWEA reading RIT score.
  • Use your Reading notebook to respond to your reading.
  • Each quarter you will be asked to present a “book talk” in front of the class for a grade.
  • Each week I will ask you about what you are reading, which books you have added to your list, which books you abandoned, and which ones you plan to read next.
  • Every Friday, you will turn in a completed Reading List.

Reading-Read for 15 minutes and list the books read in your reading list. Reading list is due on Friday. Also, read for 15 minutes on MyOn everyday. I will be checking your minutes weekly.

Math-Do 30 minutes on Khan Academy using your new RIT score and practice on iLearn for the math-a-thon.
Writing– You should have completed 2 narratives and 2 opinion pieces. Complete your Native American and your Jamestown, Roanoke, or Plymouth colony powerpoint from the book you checked out and send them all  to me once you completed them.
