Book Fish

     Reading every night is ESSENTIAL in First Grade.  Although I do not require each child to complete a reading log, it is important that your child is engaged in reading for at least 15 minutes each night.  In order to help encourage this behavior, our class is going to begin the Book Fish Reading Program. Your child will be allowed to fill out a book fish each time he or she reads a book. If your child reads chapter books, then he or she may fill out a book fish for each chapter read. The book fish should be filled out with the title of the book, the author, the date read and a parent signature.  Students will bring in their completed book fish and add them to our classroom fish bowl.  At the end of the week, I will pick out a few lucky book fish from the bowl.  The students that filled out the book fish will get to choose a reward coupon.  The more students read, the better chance they have of getting their fish pulled out on Friday.  Please be sure to have your child fill out all of the information and cut out their fish before returning them to school.  Blank book fish papers will always be available in our classroom for your child.
