Can We Read for 1,000,000 minutes?
The entire building has been challenged to collectively try to read for 1,000,000 minutes!  Our self-selected reading time is your child's independent reading program.  Students read at their "just right" reading level for at least 10 minutes in school; and at least 10 minutes at home each day.  Students track each increment of 10 minutes on their personal log sheet.  Our goal is to develop your child's knowledge as a reader across genres of literature, as well as his/her ability to strategically read.  Classes will begin sending books home during the month of December.  So far the PLC educational community has read for 821,957 minutes.
Remember, the more time your child spend reading, the better reader he/she will become!

Talking at Mealtime Makes Better Readers
According to a recent study, mealtimes are one of the best times to talk to your child.  And that's important!  When you talk with your child you are helping him/her practice oral (spoken) language skills.  These oral language skills will help your child develop into a strong reader. It is important for young readers to hear lots of new words at home.  Children who hear lots of new words are more likely to build strong language skills.  Hearing lots of new words helps them learn how to figure out what those words mean from the way they are used in conversation.  The researchers also say talking with your child about thoughts and ideas is just as important.  Remember, talking about the pictures in a book and what the words mean is always a good idea.
