Research indicates that reading is one of the most important skills that students need for success. I am dedicated to growing your child into a strong, fluent reader, but I need your help! Please read 20 minutes with your child at home each night. There will also be a small amount of homework to do each night that will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. A packet will be sent home each Friday and will be returned the following Thursday. If your child is struggling to complete the homework, please contact me. Homework should be a time consuming part of your day, but it is important to reinforce what is learned at school and build time/task management and study habits.
