Daily reading and Reading Record
Please read with your child on daily basis for 10-20 minutes. Your child is given a reading record where you can add a short comment every time he/she has read to you. Your child’s class teacher checks the reading record on daily basis and will give your child a stamp every time they’ve read at home. When 20 stamps are collected, your child will get a certificate/ reward for being a proactive reader. We are looking forward to your support and co-operation.
