Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!!

My name is Mrs. Julie Baker, and I have been an educator for 25 years! I earned my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading from Shippensburg University. As I continued my education, I earned both a Masters degree in Reading and a Reading Supervisory Certificate.

READ 180 Next Generation is an intensive, research-based reading program. The program will help students recognize and spell words correctly, read with fluency, and comprehend text. The program utilizes technology to deliver individualized reading instruction, provide valuable skills practice, and motivate students to become confident and successful readers. The goal of the program is to read grade-level material independently, with confidence and fluency in all subjects.

Here are some things you could do at home to help your child become a lifelong reader:
*The Daily ReadMake reading a daily activity by reading to, or with, your child for 20 minutes every day.
*Fast and Fun Reads: Use magazines, newspapers, comic books, recipes, TV schedules, travel guides, and road signs as 
reading opportunities!
*Read and Ride: Listen to books on tape or CD while traveling by car, or bring a personal player with earphones to 
listen to books while traveling.
*Read and Chat: Talk about what your child is reading. Ask questions about the characters or what is happening in the story!

Each student is expected to be prepared for class by bringing a Chromebook (fully charged), a pencil, and most importantly, a positive attitude. READ 180 is a graded class. Each student will earn a grade through the following categories:
Participation (50%), Classwork (40%), and Assessments (10%).

Thank you for your support in making reading and the goals of READ 180 important at home as well as in the classroom. 
I am looking forward to a very productive and successful school year! If you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact me with the email provided below.
