We have just started our first, month long, reading promotion in the school. Some children have got out of the habit of reading so, while Readings Eggs is going down very well with the children, we want to supplement it and encourage them to read for enjoyment and not just for homework!
The challenge this month is to read as many books as possible during the month of November. The progress of the class will be recorded on a noticeboard in the corridor and it will be referred to at assembly each week. There may even be prizes for the class that reads the most!
In addition to this we are asking all children from 3rd to 6th to bring in a book with them each day if possible. The children can keep the book in their bag and will have an opportunity during the day to Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R. time!) They can also record their reading on Seesaw and send it to their teacher and, of course, the more reading you can do with your child at home the better. Read to them each day and ask them to read to you.
