Hi Parents! The kids are bringing home their reading bags tonight! The bags have 10 books that should be close to your child's independent reading level, according to kindergarten information. Each night, the children should read for about 10 mins. They may definitely read for longer! This will be THE ONLY HOMEWORK your first grader will have this year. You will see the same books for several days until the kids trade them in at school for new books, so they will be rereading many of their books, which is very beneficial for beginning readers. Please send the book bags BACK TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY, as the kids will be using them during reading workshop. Let me know if you have any questions!
