I am using something new this year for reading, and I love it!!! Your student will be using a magazine called StoryWorks....it is a magazine from Scholastic.They will receive a new magazine each month. It is jam packed with stories for every reader. In our first issue, we have Nonfiction, Paired texts, Fiction, Poetry, a Play, a Debate, plus grammar, vocabualry and even contents they can participate in. This magazine is taking the place of their reading book, so they are responsible for having it with them every day. Your child can go to http://storyworks.scholastic.com/ and click "student view" to practice vocabulary, grammar, etc. They need the password "haag14"
