Welcome to our school's 25 Books Campaign!
This year your child has the responsibility of
reading 25 books (more in
the lower grades). Much of this reading will
be done at home so that the school hours are used to concentrate on
schoolwork. Children will record information about the books they read in
their Reading Records or Book Logs.
What to read at home
The books that your child will be reading as part
of the 25 Books Campaign are supposed to be easy to read. Why easy? These
books are to be read for pleasure. We want children to have fun reading them,
to dig into them and not want to put them down until each book is finished. If
children read books that are too difficult, they will not be able to stick
with them. They will be frustrated and will put the books down, unread. We
need your help in making sure that your child is finding books that are easy
and fun for him or her to read.
