Next week you will also begin working on reading books in small groups with Mrs. Gade, in addition to using the Reading Academy program. How do you feel about these activities?

I will like the Raz-Kids more because then I will be able to read more. I will also be able to take quizzes on them after I finish reading them. I could also record my-self reading because if I could do that in a class then that will be cool and I will also be able to listen to my-self read and then I can see if I had made any errors then I will be able to redo it or just fix the 1 or 2 errors!!!

Then after I get done reading a book I go outside. The activity I would like to reading books is cause that I love to read book every knight so that is why I had picked this activity it also help you read better when you is having a fluency check that is why I had picked this activity. Everybody should really pick this activity for they can read at a good fluency were they suppose to be at when you is in the 6th grade. Like if you want to pass your grade you will have to read at the right grade level.So this is my whole page about this activity these are the reason I had picked that activity on this website.

 dominic   Tue, January 12, 2010

The thing that I will like about it is that is the taking the test. Also other things is reading groups. The thing is that I don't like about this is it starts next week,so if you could do something about that it is next week because Academy of Reading is getting on my nerve not just because what I'm doing and I can't pass it but because we and as in we I mean me well I am tiered of doing the same thing over and over agin so please can we do the taking test and stuff this week because it seem more fun!!!
