New Reading Folders

This week we will start to use our new Reading Folders. We will have a set amount to read aloud each night, and parents are asked to sign that it has been done. We have invested in some new sets of readers that are really interesting, and the boys will also be encouraged to choose their own books from the class library or from home.

The goal is to instill a love of reading in each of the boys, and this will happen when they find books that peak their interest. Parents can really help with this.
