Reading is an essential component of the second grade classroom. The most important task you can do with your child this year is to read with them at least 15 minutes each night. It does not have to be the only your child's story of the week. It can be comics, magazines, or chapter books. It is important that you find something they are interested in. Our main goal in second grade is to create the love of reading in your child with your help at home this can be acheived.
