The weather is getting cooler. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately and wears a coat every day. March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
Reading out loud to a child is one of the most important things a parent can do to prepare them for future academic success. Many parents ask if they should be reading to their child, or if their child should be doing all the reading. The answer is BOTH. A balance of reading and being read to is the key to the success of a beginning reader.
What are the benefits of reading aloud to your child?
Reading aloud helps to bond the parent and child.
Being read to helps a child understand the purpose of the printed word.
Being read to builds a child's vocabulary.
Being read to introduces a child to an exciting world of learning and entertainment.
Please pack a healthy snack separate from your child's lunch (we are a nut-free classroom). Also, please send in one water bottle for your child to use in school. We get very thirsty during the day.
