Read Across America in April!

Once again, the Maine Education Association has chosen to celebrate Read Across America by giving first graders reading materials. If you check your child's homework folder tomorrow, you'll find a bookmark and a nonfiction title about the planets. 

Happy reading!

Reading Homework

Your children have made great gains in reading! As a result, many are bringing home longer books to read each night. We realize that spring is a very busy time. If your child does not have a chance to read his/her book, please keep it home for an extra night. 

I would also like to mention that every book does not need to be read aloud to you. Now is a good time to encourage whisper reading or even silent reading. Your first graders are truly ready to read independently.
