Raising a Reader

     Join our community book club and be a part of the conversation!  It's easy!  Each night get your family together to readaloud for about 15 minutes.  Follow the schedule on the calendar below.

       Each Monday a packet of questions, and a couple of writing prompts will go home.  After reading each night, answer the questions that go along with the reading assignment.  At the end of the week turn in your Reading Response packet to the basket located in your grade level pod.  Due dates for packets are included on the Reading Calendar.


          The purpose of the reading response packet is to support reading comprehension skills, so family members and students can work together on the questions and the writings.

(K/1 parents:  It's okay if you help to write your student's responses on the lines.)

Students who complete their packets will be acknowledged on the morning announcements, and students who complete all four packets will be entered into a drawing to participate in our OSOB "Game Show" celebration!  Did I mention there will be prizes at the celebration?!

Most of all, have fun reading together as a family!

The purpose of the organization Raising A Reader is to increase language development and provide families immediate access to rich texts.

Pre-Kindergarten students will have an opportunity to participate in a rotating library!  Students will take a different red bag of books home each week so they can 'Book cuddle' with their families!



The purpose of this reading incentive it so foster a love of reading and increasing the amount of time spent reading outside of the classroom.
