Saddle Up and Read

October 2014

Our Saddle Up and Read theme for the month of October is “Read Aloud to a Child”.

October 19-25, 2014 is Read Aloud to a Child Week in Virginia. Reading aloud is one of the most effective techniques that parents can use to positively impact their children’s success in school and in life. We encourage you to take this challenge to read with your child for 20 minutes each night! If nightly 20-minute reading schedules are too hectic, 20-minute sessions spread over the weekend will work fine. Or you may choose to listen and discuss a book-on-tape, CD or Kindle - just as long as you listen together! Students who participate in this project will earn $5.00 in cowboy cash to spend at the end of the year at the Reading Rodeo!

Please fill in and sign the pledge in your child's folder and return it to your child’s teacher by October 27, 2014.
