This is a reminder to parents of students enrolled in the Reading Recovery Program. The Reading Recovery program is provided to your students as a regularly scheduled daily program designed to provide a boost in your child’s literacy experience and learning in school. This program runs daily during the regular school schedule and runs for a total of 20 weeks. Your child is enrolled for the full 20 weeks required for the boost that they are to receive in learning to read and write at their grade level. If your child is consistently missing time, late for class or not completely nightly homework, they are not gaining the boost that they need and will not be able to complete the program successfully, which will not be helpful for their success towards Grade 2 entry. Please ensure that your child is attending school regularly, is on time and has completed homework each night. It is important that homework is done each evening (preferably not the morning before they leave for school), as continuous incomplete homework shows in their success levels daily at school. If homework is incomplete, your child will find it hard to gain reading or writing strength in new levelled books. They change levels frequently and this is very important for them to read each night and complete their sentence structure strips. Please take the time to sit and listen to your child while they read and help them as they build their sentence and re-read it to you. I thank you and appreciate your help towards your child’s literacy path and learning! J Miss Melissa Ellison Reading Recovery: Esgenoopetitj School.
