There is a very strong correlation between the time a student spends reading
every day and his/her achievement on standardized reading tests.Your child is
expected to read for about 20 -30 minutes each school night at home.His
school reading time is not a substitute for this after school homework
I am requesting that your child's Reading Record Sheet be signed by you at
least once a week. I understand that every day might be too much. The
point of having you sign it is that you help me insure that your child is
doing his reading homework, you are aware of the books your child is
reading, and that your child knows that you and I are working together
towards a common goal for your child. Thank you.
