    In reading, students will master comprehension skills and vocabulary strategies practiced during the week. We will end the week with a weekly reading assessment, also known as a cold read.  These assessments correspond to the PARCC testing that the students take in the spring.  The cold read consists of two text passages that are new to the students.  The passages are very similar and relate back to the genre and background that was discussed earlier in the week. Your student’s workshop book has every comprehension skill and vocabulary strategy for each week.  These mini lessons are a great way to practice for the weekly reading assessment.
