Each nine weeks we have a reading goal for families to help their child complete at home. We really believe that reading at home makes a difference and that it is a lifelong habit that pays off in spades. We hope that our children will establish this daily reading habit in kindergarten. This past nine weeks we expected our children to read 25 books at home (Monday through Thursday nights) and to record those books in a book log. We send home a "just right" book each night for each child to read. At the end of the nine weeks, every child that met the goal and turned in a log received a Readers-to-Leaders certificate at our Awards Ceremony. Our Principal, Susan Phillips, always plans a special treat for all the children who meet their goal. Today 30 of our children were invited to play Bingo with the Principal and every single child that played was a winner and received a prize! What fun!
