Notice and Note Bookmarks
For the second grading period, students will be required to read two novels and complete a Notice and Note bookmark for each. Upon completion of each novel, students will conference with me to discuss each sign post. The students are expected to recognize two examples of each of the six signposts, write the page number on the bookmark, and answer the guiding question on a sticky note. Each bookmark conference will be 50 % of a major grade.
We are almost half way through the second grading period, so your child should be finished or almost finished with their first novel. Students are given over 100 minutes a week in class to silently read their independent novel. During this time, I am available to conference, answer questions, or reteach concepts as needed.
Please check with your child on their progress. Completion of the first novel is due on November 17th.
