Midland, TX- Central Community
Dear CC Families,
It's fitting that our quote this week pertain to reading....
In her book, The Core, Leigh Bortins explains,
"Parents have the responsibility to improve their own reading skills and broaden their appetites for reading by bringing books into the home. The best way to improve your child's reading ability is by improving your own. Fortunately, you can deeper your own understanding of literature while helping your child learn to read. Children need to spend time with books in three ways:
1. Being read to from books above their reading level to increase speaking vocabulary.
2. Reading easy books below level in order to master common words.
3. Reading books at a comfortable level to gradually increase the child's reading ability."
Whatever the struggle may be in your own home, I hope you are able to see God in the little things and praise Him in the big things!
