In Reading Recovery, we provide the supplies! Students will be provided with books to read at home, a subscription for a digital reading library that can be accessed on the Chromebook, and a cut-up sentence notebook.  We encourage our students to read the books in their book bag, glue their cut-up sentence in the notebook, and draw a picture to go with it. Please be sure the book bag comes back to school each day!
  • Always be respectful of the teacher’s right to teach, other students’ right to learn, and everyone in the classroom.
  • NO cell phone or gum in my classroom.
  • Arrive to class on time every day with ALL your needed books and supplies.
  • I will dismiss you at the end of class – NOT the bell.
