Reading:

I am so excited for our Cuddle Up and Read programme! My hope is that students will enjoy spending approximately 10 minutes snuggled up reading with an adult a few times per week. Please return these books to class every single day via the children’s pouches.
Starting next week, you will notice an appropriately levelled book or books in your child’s pouch. Instructions for what to read will be printed on a post it note (located inside the front cover). We ask parents to initial the post it note after your child has completed the assigned pages. This is important to your child as they are rewarded for initialled homework. 
Even though homework may only be updated a few times per week, we appreciate having those books and sheets returned daily so that they are available for class work.
Thank you so much for your support!  If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Spence.
