I have started a new home reading program for students. They need to read for at least 20 minutes at home each day, record the number of pages as well as write a response to one of the questions each night in their reading journal. A parent needs to sign the journal each night.
This is to encourage children to read at home and think about what they are reading, but it is also to encourage dialogue between child and parent.
At the end of each term it will be brought in for me to see how many pages each child is reading and how they respond to their books.
I encourage students to select books they have not read before and comics are not allowed as home reading but graphic novels are.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to e-mail me.
