RED (Read Every Day) Calendars

From Mrs. Sprangers, Edison Reading Teacher

As adults, we know the importance of reading in our lives. We need it to read signs, to grocery shop, to use a computer, to fill out applications, to follow a recipe, to understand instructions to assemble furniture, etc. In school, reading is important in all subject areas. Without reading, students have a difficult time understanding material in any academic area.

One way that you can help your child(ren) is to encourage them to read daily or read to them daily, even if they already know how to read. This reading is part of their daily homework, 15 minutes for grades K-2 and 20 minutes for grades 3- 6. It is also a great opportunity for you to model reading for them, even if you just read the newspaper, a book, or a magazine while they are reading. You can also partner read with them by you reading one page and having them reading the next.

These colored RED calendars are to be used to help record the minutes that your child(ren) read each night. At the end of the month add the total number of reading minutes and put it on the line provided. Your child gives their sheets to their homeroom teacher to turn into the office. A RED (Read Every Day) medal is given on the last day of the year to all students who met the monthly goal for seven of the nine months we are in school. Enjoy your time reading!!
