Reading is an essential component of first grade. The most important task you can do with your child this year is to read with them at least 20 minutes each night. It does not have to only be 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 is to create a love of reading! Please help us reach this goal by reading at home. Don't forget you can access thousands of free online books through www.myon.com. Your child knows their user name and the password is myon.
