Mrs. Michael's Lesson Plans
Sustained Silent Reading
It is important to practice reading for enjoyment. Reading selections can include a magazine article, comic book, newspaper, internet blog/article, cookbook, novel, etc. Studies support that students who engage in sustained silent reading for 15-20 minutes regularly will experience increased vocabulary, better attitude and improved habits toward reading and fluency.
The journals may be paper/pencil or digital. If students choose a digital format, they should use a flashdrive to save to turn in at the end of the week or submit it through google drive to firstname.lastname@example.org.L
