Home Reading

At Nose Creek Elementary we believe that home reading is a key component to your child's education. Students should be reading nightly for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. This nightly practice should be enjoyable for you and your child. Please remember to record their reading in the manner requested by their teacher.

Progressing through the levels will be at the discretion of the teacher. The reading must be at an independent level (96-100% accuracy). The teacher will be looking for proficiency in the following 5 areas when determining if your child is ready to move to the next level.

  • Fluency and expression
  • Comprehension
  • Attending to punctuation
  • Word recognition and accuracy
  • Decoding skills 
Our goal is for each child to learn to read and love to read at a pace that is comfortable for them. This program should not be viewed as a race or competition. Thank-you for your nightly support in ensuring that your child becomes a lifelong reader!
