Title 1 Reading
 
 Read every day!!
There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Answers to questions you might have about your child's take home books:

Why is my child bringing this book home?
The "gray books" as we call them, are copies of the books we have read together in class. I would like your child to practice reading this book several more times until they can read it easily. We practiced reading this book today in school. When they read the book to you tonight, they should be able to read most of the book without much help. While some books are a little more difficult than others, your child should be able to talk to you about the characters in the story and tell you what the story is about and what happens.
Should these books be returned?
No, these books are for your child to keep. The program we use for classes, Leveled Literacy Intervention, encourages multiple readings of the same books so students can become fluent readers. Repeated readings really help! We hope students will go back and read these books as many times as they like. Your child will have a nice collection of books they can read easily anytime, anywhere.
Do the colored bags need to be returned to school every day?
Yes. Please send back the bag everyday so that I may send your child home with the last lesson's book. Remind your child to leave these books at home so they do not pile them up in their bag.
