Hello LVES Families!
I would like for everyone to know about my collection of books that are available for parents and guardians to check out to read at home with their children. I have a broad variety of topics to choose from, and I am happy to offer suggestions as well. It could be an issue they may need a little more help with understanding and would benefit from having a parent, guardian, or sibling read with them at home about it. Some of the topics include: problems at home, divorce, new family dynamics, grief, problems at school, self esteem, friendship issues, or test anxiety. In addition to these topics, I have several for each of the character traits we learn about during our guidance classes, such as: responsibility, respect, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, and integrity.
I am always adding to my collection, so if there is a particular topic you are interested in, please let me know! I am happy to send a book home with your child to borrow, just send an email with your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
And remember, there are so many benefits of reading with your child! Reading together promotes increased communication between you and your child, it can help calm children, and help to improve their listening skills. Let me know how I can help!
“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore, a duty. It should be offered as a gift.” ~Kate DiCamillo
Hola familias de LVES!
Me gustaría que todos supieran acerca de mi colección de libros que están disponibles para que los padres y tutores puedan leer en casa con sus hijos. Tengo una amplia variedad de temas para elegir, y me complace ofrecer sugerencias también. Podría ser un problema que necesiten un poco más de ayuda con la comprensión y se beneficiarían si un padre, tutor o hermano lea con ellos en casa sobre esto. Algunos de los temas incluyen: problemas en el hogar, divorcio, nuevas dinámicas familiares, duelo, problemas en la escuela, autoestima, problemas de amistad o ansiedad ante los exámenes. Además de estos temas, tengo varios para cada uno de los rasgos de carácter que aprendemos durante nuestras clases de orientación, tales como: responsabilidad, respeto, cuidado, imparcialidad, confiabilidad e integridad.
Siempre estoy agregando a mi colección, así que si hay un tema en particular que le interesa, ¡hágamelo saber! Me complace enviar un libro a casa con su hijo para pedir prestado, solo envíe un correo electrónico con su solicitud a: email@example.com.
Y recuerde, ¡hay tantos beneficios de leer con su hijo! Leer juntos promueve una mayor comunicación entre usted y su hijo, puede ayudar a calmar a los niños y mejorar sus habilidades para escuchar. ¡Déjame saber cómo puedo ayudar!
“La lectura no debe presentarse a los niños como una tarea, un deber. Debería ofrecerse como un regalo.” ~Kate DiCamillo
