New York State mandates that all first graders read at least 25 books independently during the school year. In order to fulfill this requirement, I will be sending home their Book Review Sack each Friday. This is a program that will last the entire school year.
The children will complete 1 book with an activity. I understand that not all children are reading yet. Please feel free to read to or with your child, as well as work on the activity together. Allow your child to read as many words as s/he can read and then discuss the book. Over time, your child will become more independent. After reading and discussing the book, please choose and complete 1 activity from the list of 25 activities.
Thank you for all your cooperation and support in what I expect will be a fun and enriching experience for all.
