Reading in Our Kindergarten


In our small group, each child reads each book out loud using strategies
to figure out the words such as, getting your mouth ready, using picture clues,
looking for little words in big words, and remembering sight words.
At home, your child should read each book out loud to a grownup then
should add the title to our monthly "Book Treasure Box Reading Log."
Keep all the books we make in your "Book Treasure Box"
so your child can practice reading anytime!
