Top 10 Ways to Raise A Lifelong Reader

The elementary is continuing with Guided Reading for 1st – 5th grades. Students will be reading books that are at their individual reading level. This will increase their reading confidence and success. Students will read in a small group in school and will bring home a Guided Reading book every night and students will read to their parents each evening. Parents are asked to sign the half sheet each night. In addition to the reading, 10 minutes of math facts each night will help make students more successful!!
