After grading the reading test from Friday I have decided not to count it toward the reading grade for this quarter. Four out of 18 tudents passed the reading test. I am not going count this test in the reading grade for the quarter but I am going to send it home so you can see what answers your child got incorrect. Most of the errors were on author's purpose. We are going to revisit author's purpose at least once more before the end of the year. This would be a good skill to practice at home. Ask your child what was the purpose of the author writing a story they are reading. Was it to persuade, inform, or entertain the reader? Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
