WEEKLY READING LOGS:

Please assist your child in selecting appropriate books to read each night for at least 20 minutes. These can be chapter books, picture books, magazine articles, stories from our Journeys reader, reading with/to a family member, etc… The best way children learn to read is by READING, so every little bit counts! Reading books for enjoyment will help develop a love of reading, a greater vocabulary, and improve comprehension. Reading logs are to be filled out, completed, and turned in EVERY FRIDAY signed by a parent or guardian.
