Hi Parents! I’ve seen this research floating around in various forms over my lifetime as a teacher (16 years). I recently came across this visual and thought I’d share it.
Now, we do a lot of reading at school, but nightly reading is also important. While I don’t ask students to read for 20 minutes each night, I do stress to them the importance of reading at least 1-2 books each night (the little leveled readers). They understand that as they become more proficient readers, the books will become lengthier, and therefore they might limit it to one book per night. Thank you for encouraging your reader at home! I do take time to read your comments on the Reading Log sheet. Also…when you fill out the reading log sheet, it is OK to write one book title per line. The students are collecting finished reading logs at school and will get them back the last week of school. It’s always a fun day to get them back and count how many reading logs they’ve completed! I’m looking forward to meeting with you at conferences to celebrate your child’s successes with you and discuss their goals for 2nd quarter!
