My name is Ms. Ellison and I am your child's Literacy Support Teacher. I may have sent a book home with your child starting yesterday, Monday, September 11, 2017. I request of the parents and guardians each night for the younger students especially, that you please sit with your child and listen to them read. This should be the full book for Grade 2's.
If your child is in Grade 4/5, my requested reading time is: 20 minutes MINIMUM per night from their books. It is my hope that again, a parent or guardian will be sitting with your child and listening to their reading practice each night. I will be assigning some other homework in the days to come but for this week, reading practice is what will be sent home.
If your child is in Middle school and I have sent a book home with them, their reading time is a MINIMUM of 20 minutes per night, preferably a minimum of 30 minutes though. However, if they are interested in reading longer, they may do so!
PLEASE FOR ALL GRADES, HAVE YOUR CHILDREN RETURN THEIR ASSIGNED BOOKS DAILY! This is very important so they will have their book to read during the time I take them, or during quiet reading times.
I will be sending a Reading log home with them this week as well.
Thank you and sincerely,
Literacy Support-Esgenoopetitj School.
