Children should be reading every night for a minimum of 20 minutes (more is better). Please talk to your children about the books they are reading. Ask them about the setting, problems and solutions, similes, summary, and connections. Talking about reading with your children creates a healthy family atmosphere where your children learn the importance of reading. If you read and show an interest in your children's reading, they will want to read and become better at it. Practice, practice, practice.
Our class is currently reading biographies including, Louis Braille and Amelia Earhart. We are looking for examples of cause and effect and examples of compare and contrast.
We are utilizing technology in every way we can. Look at the picture to see Guillermo and Oudai listening to a story on Mr. Lange's IPod.
