Drop Everything And Read There will be time each day for silent reading. Please monitor your child's D.E.A.R. book for appropriate reading level. It should be something that can be read, without assistance, and should take a week or two to complete. Please take some time to discuss what your child has read. Your interest opens the world of leisure reading!
Thank you for your help!! I will also use D.E.A.R. time to Read Aloud to them a chapter book that ties in with the curriculum.
Please preview the library books your child brings home each Thursday. We want to encourage book selection that matches their reading level as well as their interests. Please have them read to you or read to them each day. Remind them to bring their library books each Thursday morning.
The following website is a good source for suggested leisure reading by grade level.
