  • Sixth Grade Reading Homework Letter

    Just like learning a sport or musical instrument, reading is a skill that needs to be practiced
    daily! In our classrooms, students are given time to read books of their choosing each day. In
    allowing them to choose their own reading material, our goal is that students will develop a
    positive outlook on reading that will continue throughout their lives.

    We are asking for your help in achieving this goal. You’ve probably noticed that your child has
    written “Read” in his assignment book for each day of class this year. Students have been told
    that they are expected to be reading independently at home each night, for at least 20 minutes...
