Read Across America Pledges
This year many classroom have pledged to read at home every night, and to read over school vacations. As part of Read Across America Day, we hope that all students will pledge to every night. All students are expected to practicing reading at home. Practicing reading can take many forms: reading independently, listening to a story, and digital literacy counts too. Please remind students that they can use many reading websites and reading games to practice reading at home.
Check out the following sites... these sites offer great practice along with old favorites like RazKids, and Unite for Literacy.
