Reading is an important part of our day. For lower elementary, we will spend at least one hour every day on Reading skills. For upper elementary, we will spend approximately 45 minutes everyday on Reading skills.
The most important thing that you can do for your child is to read with them. It is very helpful for a parent to read a page to a child and then have the child read to you. The child gains practice as well as listening to the flow of a fluent reader. It also is important family time that will give your child confidence in him/herself which is invaluable.
