• It seems as though a trend of reading comprehension issues are greatly on the rise. If your child does not like to read, they are going to have a difficult time this year. Reading is the key to a good foundation of learning. I do not like to talk about state testing this early, but it is a requirement for 5th grade this year. Each test is over a specific content and I can assure they are all Reading based. Below are just a few examples of reading issues:(students could tell me all the wonderful things they learned but just had a very difficult time reading it in question form.) 
    BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF STUDENTS RUSHING AND USING NO CRITICAL THINKING STRATEGIES:
