We will have an exciting year reading past our bedtimes! Our goal this year is to make reading exciting and interesting for all learners. We will accomplish this through the use of many types of media and genres of literature. I encourage students to share interesting stories and ideas they find through their independent reading. And, as always, I recommend that parents read with their children as much as possible. Find an author your student likes and read everything he or she has written. Wear out favorite stories that you read to your children when they were younger. Remind them how enjoyable reading can be!
