**AGENDAS: Your child is expected to write down their homework every morning as part of their morning routine here at school. To reinforce this expectation of responsibility, we ask that you initial your child's agenda every night. This will reinforce independence, responsibility and foster essential organizational skills for your child. It will also remind you of what is assigned for homework or make you aware of important dates/activities/assessments coming up.**

Dear Third Grade Parents,

Upon entering third grade students will focus on finding a “good fit” book and learn how to use QAR strategies (see below) to help build fluency and comprehension of what is read. Additionally, we learn test lingo and strategies to become successful at retrieving information from our written material. Another goal it to build reading stamina. Students are expected to read effectively for increasingly longer periods of time. This is a skill that is built over time; success is dependent upon this skill. You will hear of and are asked to require the use of RUNNERS at home.

**RUNNERS for READING PRACTICE HOMEWORK**

**R = Read the questions**

**U = Underline important words**

**N = Now read the title**

**N = Now read the passage**

**E = Eliminate poor choices**

**R = Remember to highlight your proof in the passage**

**S = Select the best answer**

Please encourage your child to use this strategy and assist them as they learn this valuable reading strategy.

**Just like in math it is equally important to show how you arrive at your answer or your proof, the same is true in Reading.**

QAR Question-Answer Relationships

We ask our readers to ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text. Ways to help guide this process are divided below:

*Right There*

- The answer is right there in the text. Look for key words in the question when you go back to the text to find the answer. These questions can look like this:

*Author and Me*

- The answer is not directly in the text. These questions require you to infer. You need to use what you already know and clues from the text to find the answer. These questions may look like this:

*Think and Search*

- The answer can be found in more than one place in the text. You need to put together pieces of information to find the answer.

*On My Own*

- The answer is not in the text. You need to use your schema and give your opinion.
