Reading Strategy: RUNNERS
All of the students in the upper grades at Cash will use the reading strategy, RUNNERS. It is also used in middle school. RUNNERS will help students to focus on what a reading passage is about and help them answer questions correctly. I have added a printable version of this strategy in the Classroom Documents tab. Please encourage your children to use RUNNERS on all of their assignments. THANK YOU! :)
