My Homework

  • Get into the Reading Habit!

    Read with your child every day.  Even older children still enjoy being read to. 

    Talk with your child about the story. 

    • Talk about what is happening. 
    • Ask questions--WHY did that happen?  WHY did the character do that? 
    • Talk about how the story relates to your life. 
    • Talk about new and interesting ideas or words.

    Set a time for your child to read to you.  Some students will have books that are sent home to reread to you.  Talk with your child about the story.

    Make reading a fun family activity.

    If the at home reading is feeling like work--please talk to me about finding more appropriate books for your child to read at home.
