Time with text counts! Research shows that kids who read the most, achieve at the highest levels. We all know that practice makes us better. The best way to get better at reading, is to READ! Making time for our students to read is one of the easiest and best things we can do to help them become the best they can be. Spending 20-30 minutes reading everyday is ideal, but I realize it is not always possible. Even if you cannot spend that much time reading everyday, encourage your child to read whenever they can. Every little bit counts!
See the "My Booklist" section of my site to get ideas for good fit books for your child! There are additional resources related to reading strategies, and more reading lists in the "My Links" section as well.
