March is National Reading Month. Each year in honor of this, schools celebrate “Read Across America Week” starting March 1st. While reading is at the forefront of education and school, we encourage you to continue fostering the love of reading at home. You can make reading exciting by creating a theme, reading in a fun spot, or reading to a pet, sibling, or toy. When enjoying a book with your child encourage them to read the book to you as well.
Sixth District students will receive special surprises from the FRC to help foster the love of reading.
Children of all ages can read in many ways.
Reading the pictures - children can tell the story based on pictures alone. This is great for our young children and early readers.
Shared Reading - As a child is read to, have them read words they may already know. This is a great way to keep them engaged and practice reading.
Retelling - Children can retell a story they've previously been read.
Going to the local library – make a visit to your library and sign up your child for a library card.
