Reading is key to a healthy academic diet. Read Across America was developed in 1997 by the National Education Association. Its purpose is to motivate children to read and to celebrate reading. Statistics show that children who are motivated about reading and read more do better in school. Read Across America takes place on the closest school day to Dr. Seuss birthday which is on March 2nd. “Be awesome! Be a book Nut!” -Dr. Seuss
Reading logs will start this Quarter, in order to help build fluency, vocabulary as well as comprehension skills. Students will be asked to read for at least 20 minutes per day along side our regular homework assignments. Attached at the top is a sample copy of the reading log. Questions please let me know.
We will continue "book clubs" within our classroom in order to help foster collaborative learning.
Also as a part of our literacy program, students that read 10 books and complete projects to go along with them, will have the opportunity to either have their own photo shoot, or participate in a game of students verses teachers basketball game! Parents please continue to encourage your students to read every day.
