READING: Reading is an integral part of everyday class life.  Your child will read every day in class, either through guided, shared or individual reading.  To support your child's reading progress, we ask that they read every night at home. Please be patient as we begin the term as reading time can take a little longer and your child may not read every day at the beginning.
