Important dates will be placed here as they are available.
Reading with your child is an excellent way to foster a love of books! Please read with your child every night and record the nights of reading in the purple log book that has been provided by our librarian, Mrs. Chand. Once you have filled a page in the log book, return it to school, so your child can receive a reading prize! Super Readers books have been tallied for this year, but keep reading with your kids at home every day!
Each student has received login information for Raz-Kids to glue on the front page of the planner. They can use this to to access Raz-Kids from home via the website, or an app that can be downloaded onto a touch screen device. Raz-Kids is a fantastic collection of online books for your child to read or listen to. We are using this program at school during our Daily 5 time, as well. With the login information sent home, your child can continue to practice his/her reading with books at a level that is just right for him/her. When your child reads books at their current reading level, they have a higher success rate at improving their overall reading skills. Often kids choose books that are too hard for them to read which doesn't give them the opportunity to develop their decoding skills and comprehension skills. I hope that you will take advantage of using this wonderful program at home!
