At Home Reading
We are a week in to our fall at home reading program, and so far have had great participation from the students. Most of them earned the free recess for the first week's reward. Slips returned on Monday will earn the students some delicious and nutritious snack mix. Remember, as the letter sent home stated, students must return at least 3 out of the 4 reading slips to get to attend the trip to Jefferson County Park on October 24. Reading more is the best way to become a better reader. Please encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes every day. It's a great way to spend some time together. Read with your child, or just read your own book while they read their own book. It's wonderful for them to see you enjoying a good book. The goal is to teach them the joy of getting lost in a story and to become life long readers!
