Why Can't I Skip My Twenty Minutes of Reading Tonight?

Let's figure it out mathematically!

• Student A reads 20 minutes five nights of every week. 
• Student B reads only 4 minutes a night...or not at all!

Some questions to ponder: 

• Which student would you expect to read better? 
• Which student would you expect to know more? 
• Which student would you expect to write better? 
• Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary? 
• Which student would you expect to be more successful in school....and in life?

School Organizational Teams

Inviting All Parents

As part of the reorganization of the Clark County School District, our school will form a School Organizational Team that includes parents and guardians. Members will be elected by a vote of all parents and guardians at the school. You're input is important to the success of our school and students. Please take time to consider how you can be involved in this process and make your voice heard at our school!

Reading to Your Child

Its pretty natural for parents to ask teachers about how to help their child with reading. The question might come in different forms, sometimes like this... "Hi, I'm Johnny's mom. He's loving third grade. Hey, I've been meaning to ask you about his reading. What can we be doing at home to help him improve?" OR sometimes like this... "Hi, I'm Johnny's mom. He's loving third grade. But doggone it, every time I try to help him with his reading, we end up in a fight. Any tips?"

 

All readers, from the strugglers to the most avid, can benefit from their parents' involvement. With the huge emphasis on close, critical reading and thinking deeply about texts, how can we take advantage of parents' knowledge as readers, and usually their willingness, to support what we are trying to develop in class?
