In the packet this week you will find a green paper that contains the timed reading story and the record sheet. You will need a stop watch and some patience to time your child twice for a  minute each session. . Give the story side of the paper to your child  and just have your child start reading it. Do not review it first, it is a cold reading. If your child gets stuck on a word, give him/her the word if it is not read within 3 seconds. Count it as an error. After a minute count the number of words read and subtract the number of errors. Record the number of errors and fill in the graph. Time your child twice and watch for growth. At this point, if your child is reading 20-30 words per minute he or she is at grade level. We are aiming for 45 to 55 by the end of first grade. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding this new  homework. Usually first graders like this challenge, present it positively so that your child will not stress.
