Literacy!

Reading

Your child should either read independently for two 20-minute sessions per day, or listen to an audiobook or be read to. Any reading material is fine, as long as you feel it's appropriate. If your child struggles with five or more words on the page, then the selection is too difficult.


* Reading and writing can be in English, or in your home language, or in a combination.
