Reading Resources

Here are some tips and resources for home for reading:

 

  • Pick a consistent time and spot to read at home
  • If your student often forgets to fill out out the reading log, take it out BEFORE beginning the reading (habit building)
  • The reading log should be turned in every morning (turning in work and accountability)  
  • RAZ Kids is a free website/app where students can read, listen to, and take quizzes on leveled texts
    • https://www.kidsa-z.com/main/Login
    • Some students use this resource in class and will know their login
    • Others do not use this resource in class and will need to request a code from me
  • It’s important to read books near your reading level
  • Comprehension won’t improve if books are too hard
  • Readers aren’t challenged if books are too easy  
  • Check out the Scholastic site for book recommendations
  • You can browse by genre, reading level, grade level, series, author, and more!
  • For those who’ve asked for book suggestions, there is a “Recommendations for Students” section on this site.

MATH RESOURCES

  • Take 5 minutes to review facts.  This can be done through flashcards, apps on the tablet, verbally reviewing as you drive from one event to the next, or playing a game.
  • Use the Eureka (green) math book.  Students can work on any problems that weren’t assigned in class.  We have completed the first half of Module 2.  It is recommended to do word problems.  *Please do not work ahead in the Eureka book*
  • SRVUSD website with resources:  https://edu.symbaloo.com/mix/srvusdfamilyelemmath
  • Students CAN and SHOULD bring their math notebook home with them when they do homework or review for a test.  
  • Eureka video math lessons (especially for when a student was absent): 
  • Preview the upcoming concepts:
    • Problem solving (whole numbers)
    • Division (by single and double digits, with use of remainders)
  • Free website – Khan Academy  https://www.khanacademy.org/
  • New math website called Dreambox.  Students login through the Portal at portal.srvusd.net
