Reading is an essential part of our learning. Reading at home with parents, grandparents or siblings is a valuable tool to continued growth. When children are following along to someone reading to them, it helps them to hear the words spoken correctly and allows them to see and hear the importance of reading fluently. As your child continues to develop his/her reading skills this year, I cannot emphasize how important it is to be an active and radical reader daily. I believe each child should be reading or listening to someone read for at least 15 minutes per day. Each month, I will be sending home book orders to Scholastic. This is our first of many book orders that will be sent home this year. Please know that this is completely optional and do not feel like you need to purchase books. You are most welcome to browse the catalog with your child. If you see a book that you are interested in purchasing, you can do so in two ways: sending back the catalog with a check made payable to Scholastic or by ordering online. Follow these steps to place your online order.
