Scholastic Book Ordering

Dear Families, Did you know? Kids who read for just 20 minutes a day are more successful in school and life. Ordering from Scholastic Book Clubs is an easy way to find the best books that are just right for your child’s grade and interests.

Here’s how: Choose books with your child from the paper flyers or online at: scholastic.com/bookclubs

To order online, connect to our class using our Class Code (GLCNQ) (or look me up by our school name): As soon as your order is delivered to our classroom, I will send it home with your child. Plus every order you place earns FREE Books for our class to share. Our October book order will be due Friday, October 12th. Thank you for your support and happy reading.

The Importance of Reading to Your Child

Studies have shown that children that are read to on a consistent basis begin to develop both communication and thinking skills at a much younger age than children that aren’t read to on a consistent basis. In addition, those skills continue to progress and develop much more rapidly in children that are read to consistently. This progression of skills will continue as long as you spend quality time reading with them. And children appreciate the quality time you spend with them reading books.

Here are some things you can do to make sure you get your daily readings with your children:

·Read aloud to your children: books, newspaper and magazine articles, the back of the cereal box, labels on cans, or directions – anything with appropriate printed material on it.
·Read poems aloud together to learn about rhythm and repeated sounds in language.
·Point to the words on the page when you read. Move your finger from left to right.
·Have your child hold the book and turn the pages for you.
·Go to the library together and check out books. Be sure to ask the librarian for good books or to help you find what you need.
·Have books, magazines, and papers around the house, and let your child see that you like to read, too.
·Encourage older children to read to younger children.
·Help experienced readers talk and write about what they read.
·Develop a quality night time ritual of reading a few books with your children.
