April Reading News

Readers are writers and writers are readers.  

Your child might enjoy having their own journal and just writing. A notebook and pen or pencil is all they need.  This writing can begin in kindergarten.

Here are some suggestions:

  1. Date every entry.
  2. Keep (and re-read) what you write.
  3. Write quickly.
  4. Start writing; keep writing.
  5. Tell yourself the truth.
  6. Write naturally what you’re thinking.

The main thing is just to get writing and enjoy writing.  These simple beginning writings can unlock a love for writing.

Keep reading at home and signing your child’s Book In Every Book Bag reading calendar.  The April reading incentive is Mr. Lafleur will kiss a goat when we get 240 daily readers.
