Mrs. Murphy's Musings

News from Room 22 - October 12, 2015

Homework Readers

There will be a new, small photocopied book in your child's Friday folder every week. This book should be read by your child several times and returned to school by Friday. Your child should be doing all of the reading and each time they should read with more "style" than before. This is your time to help your child practice reading with correct intonation and expression. Please do not keep the books or allow your child to write in/color the books. We try to reuse them from year to year.
