Please encourage your child to read every day - this doesn't have to be the whole book, just a few pages each day. You will have your reading book for a week - please read it more than once for confidence and fluency. Please make a note of when your child reads in their reading journal.
PLEASE BRING READING BOOKS AND RECORDS TO SCHOOL IN BOOK BAGS EVERYDAY.
