                                                                                                   per week.

 

 Students may earn minutes by:

  • Reading to themselves.
  • Reading aloud to others.
  • Listening to a story read aloud by another family member.

 

 

You can help your child by setting aside a time each evening for reading.  We would encourage you to read a book yourself or have your child read aloud to you or the whole family.  This will encourage your child’s participation.  If you or another family member reads aloud to more than one child at a time, each child may record those minutes.
