Dear Parent/ Guardian,
It is very important that you take time each day and read to your child. Children who are encourage to read become sucessful readers themselves.
Start with age appropriate books. Use your local libraries. Encourage your child to get his/her own library card. Look at dollar stores, garage sales, or buying a book as a reward to help build a library for you child.
Encourage your child to "Track". Meaning taking his/her finger and move along the words from a left to right motion, always working from top to bottom. (This is reinforced in the classroom.)
Remember parents, you are the wonderful role models for them to emulate. Help encourage the love of reading!
