**Nightly Reading**

Students are placed in reading groups based on

their ability level. They are given books that are on this level. It is important to keep up with the reading assignments as we do have book meetings and check on comprehension. Students should read aloud to an adult and be asked questions to check for comprehension. Students complete activities at home to share in class in a graded group activity.
