Here is an article I came across this evening, should you want to know more about the benefits of reading.
In case you weren’t aware of this, your child is required to read at home every evening. Other than unfinished work in class, this is the only homework I am assigning. I’ve asked that the students keep track of their minutes by writing a little something in their agenda, using a system of their choice.
Soon we will be calculating the minutes we read (individually and as a class) and will be setting reading goals for ourselves (me included).
We are currently reading a few stories in class. If you’d like to know more about the following stories, talk to your child!
1) Les pommes de Mr Peabody
3) Because of Mr. Terupt
Have a great evening!
