Monthly Book Report Program
In an effort to continually promote literacy and to develop a love of reading, your child will participate in a monthly Book Report Program. The following is a list of book reports that must be completed by your child. All reports are due on time. Late reports will be deducted a letter grade for each day not handed in.
If a month is not listed that means there is no report due that month. I will assign a different type of book for each report and we will discuss each one in detail during class.
All reports will be assigned the first week in the month and due during the last week of the month. Every novel must be approved and signed up for before the report is completed. Each student must also pass an AR test with 80% or better on each novel used for a report.
