Dear Third Grade Community,
As I collaborate with a team of colleagues today, focused on literacy improvement, I am reading article after article about the importance of student selected reading. When students have choice of what they’re reading, they are more motivated to read! This is a key factor in improving reading.
I share this with you to explain the Scholastic challenge is two fold—purchasing books that your child is choosing will encourage him/her to read every night; and our classroom gets free books!! I get to choose the books students are asking for! If each student orders around $12.00 in books, we will get 5,000 points for our classroom library that students can check out! Please take a look through the many Scholastic magazines that have been sent home.
