Hello Families! *******WE HAVE BEGUN OUR 20/20 CLUB!! I will send home the monthly calendar for you to keep and initial the 20 days your child has read. When your child has reached the twenty day mark, send the calendar back to me and your child will receive a special sticker and they get a chance to spin for a win! Prizes include a Scholastic Club book, lunch with Mrs. Occhialini, 10 minutes of free time, Prize box pick, etc…
If you have a reluctant reader, try sharing the reading. You take a page, followed by your child reading a page.
Try books about subject matter that your child enjoys. If you need help, please call on me for suggestions. And remember, if its too hard of a text, chances are you will NOT be fostering a love for books! We want our children to love to read, so its OK to keep the book simple, as long as there is variety (not the same book every day).
Not sure if the book may be too difficult??? Try this: Listen to your children read a page in the book. If you can count five mistakes (Not including names of places or people which can still be tricky for most 2nd graders) chances are that the book is too hard and consider a different text.
The same goes for books that may be too easy. If your child is flying through the pages, feel free to challenge them with a longer chapter book.
Watch this space for project due dates and associated pdfs. Students are expected to put great effort into multi-week and trimester projects.
