Welcome to Mrs. Oesterle's Classroom!
Parents and Guardians may join our class Facebook Group at:
Only parents/guardians/family that I KNOW will be approved, so it might be necessary to send me a message telling me the relationship. Also, the group is CLOSED so that only approved members can see the group. Lastly, your child's photos will only be posted if you have signed the permission slip.
*Students come to school and take AR tests over the books that they read at home first thing in the morning. They get points for PASSING these comprehension tests. Students who earn 30 points will get lunch (McDonalds) with Mrs. Leckrone at the end of the year. Ask your child how many points he/she has earned at this point in time.
*If your child is reading chapter books (yay!), please count each chapter as a book on the reading log.
*If your child brings home a chapter book, but doesn't actually read it... send it back to school and have your child pick a smaller book. Many students like the IDEA of having a chapter book even though they don't yet have the stamina to read one.
*I'm encouraging the students to choose books that are "just right". This means that your child might choose a book that's too hard until he/she understands how to pick a "just right" book.
*If your child comes home with a book that is too hard, you can do 2 things:
a. read it with your child
b. read it TO your child
