Help Your Child Become a Better Reader

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I have enjoyed teaching your children to love reading! Literacy is SO important for your child’s development. Literacy relates to everything that we do. It benefits your children in all subjects. When your child develops a love for reading, they develop a love for learning.

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. —Jacqueline Kennedy

I encourage you to take the time to read with your child. They will forever be grateful for the time you spend with them reading. Reading expands their knowledge, comprehension, speech, and much more. This reading time will encourage your child to want to read to you and on their own.

Ms. Guthrie
