National Reading Month!
Reading together is one the best ways to bond with your child, foster a love for reading in them and help them achieve reading success! When we read with our children they also become confident readers that enjoy reading and we all know the research shows that successful readers do better in all aspects of academics. We as parents and adults influence our children by example when they see us reading daily! Check out this QR Code for more great National Reading Month activities!
In the PCS Parent Involvement Resource Center we have a series of reading books entitled, "We Both Read", just as the title infers, the books are designed specifically for both you and your child to read. At this time parents are not able to visit the PCS Parent Involvement Resource Center, but I would like to give interested parents the opportunity to check out these specific books by accessing the resource request form button under the "Test Time" article. When you complete the form I will deliver books to your student to take home on their next school day. The books can be kept for the month and brought back next month after Spring Break.
Check out the website for this book program by Treasure Bay for reading tips and much more through the link below!
