Students in the RFS program in grades 3-5 will have a short homework assignment Monday through Wednesday. The focus of the assignment is to practice comprehension skills and some students will also have a fluency component too. Parents can help their child with the fluency portion of this assignment by timing their reading for one minute and note their mistakes. Then they can figure out their CWPM (correct words per minute). The students will be graphing their progress and correcting their questions the next day in class. Parent assistance with their child's fluency practice is very helpful and greatly appreciated. It is important that your child does the homework assignment daily. This daily practice is essential for your child to show growth and progress. Our goal is to make your child feel successful in school.
