Planning in advance:
1. Please read - research has shown that reading comprehension and fluency will increase by daily reading, and of course if there isn't daily reading there is a negative impact. Reading nightly to your child is a great activity you can share with your child. Your child is never too old to be read to. Also good restful sleep for your child can be enhanced by turning off the TV before your child falls asleep.
2. Some good websites for reading are:
Both of these are easily accessed on our school website in the curriculum connections section. Please check with your child's teacher for two important things:
  1. Reading level 
  2. Password and username for these two wonderful sites 
 
 
3. PLEASE CHECK OUT THE CALENDAR SECTION OF THIS WEBPAGE FOR SOME GREAT WEBSITES FOR DAILY PRACTICE. THE ENKA LIBRARY HAS FREE COMPUTER AND INTERNET ACCESS.
