The Power of Reading at Home

Encouraging children to read at home is one of the most powerful ways that parents can support students' learning. Just 15 minutes of reading per day at home can make a difference in students' reading fluency.



This month's Report to Parents, "The Rewards of Reading," offers families strategies to get kids reading more at home.


Feel free to check out the attached information files below.
