By third grade your child should be reading a minimum of 85 w.p.m. (words per minute) at the beginning of the year. Students progress to a reading rate of 92 w.p.m. (words per minute) by mid-year. As the third grade year comes to a close, your child should be reading at least 116 w.p.m (words per minute).
Passages are sent home weekly. Set a timer for one minute. Mark through any words read incorrectly or skipped. Place a bracket around the last word read within the one minute time frame.
Read 20 minutes at home every day!
Students are strongly encouraged to read and complete Accelerated Reader books and tests!!
We send a weekly newsletter to help maintain good communication between home and school. Please check your child's folder if you have not received one. Thanks!
