One sheet of paper, front and back, is all you need to assign reading homework for every night. The homework packet is designed to work with any fiction text and is modeled after book reports.
This homework compliments take home books that you send home with your students anyway. It could also be used with stories from the basal, if you send home the basal for extra practice.
Students would use the same book all week and get a new book each Monday. I did this because we use those books to work on improving fluency. I believe this homework could also help improve comprehension. I use the decodable readers that come with our basal. However, in the future, I may use leveled books, giving students books that are on their specific reading levels. Leveled reading passages could also be used, not only books.
This one is for a fiction book.
