After Fall break, your child will be bringing home a book bag with four books for your family to enjoy! Please read or look at the books with your child every day! Setting aside a special time—even 10 minutes each day—is a wonderful way to enjoy each other’s company and create a lifelong love of reading. Read each book again and again. Young children love reading and hearing stories over and over. Talk about each book. Talking about books and re-reading will help your child become more familiar with words and develop a love of language.
In the bag you will find:
A parent contract (Please read, sign and return with bag.)
A video on reading aloud and suggested activities (Please watch and return with bag.)
4 books to read and share with your child
The Bags will come home on Tuesday and be due on Monday. Also include a drawing of your child's favorite story. Write the title on top of page, label their pictures and write a sentence about the story. This is counted as a homework grade.
It is important that bags are returned on time, since the bags are shared among all the students.
The name of the program is Raising a Reader. It is funded by a grant from PSO. We are very excited to be a part of the program and thank you for your partnership as your child develops a love of reading!
