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 9/7/18) 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.
