Dear Redwood Families,
Our school is about to take part in a special, community-wide shared reading event. Every family will receive a copy of the same book - Dog Days by Karen English - and will be asked to read it together at home over the next few weeks. I am personally asking you to make the time so that your family can participate in this special activity.
Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader, and it is also a fun, worthwhile family activity. With this program, we aim to build a Community of Readers at our school. Everyone - students, parents, teachers, even administrative staff - will be following along together.
Your child will receive a copy of Dog Days at a special school-wide assembly introducing the program and the book. Along with the book, you will receive a reading schedule so that you can keep up at home. Generally, you will be asked to read for about 15 minutes each night.
