Reading is the key that will open the door to the rest of your child's education. All students need to develop strong reading skills that they will use every day, in and out of school. That's why we're excited about launching this year's Scholastic Reading Counts! program. You may check this page to find out how the program works and some of the ways that you can help make it a success for all of our students.
The goals of the program are simple and truly important:
Promote Reading Reading more books and developing a lifelong love for reading are important to your child's success.
Improve Test Scores Independent reading has a positive impact on student achievement. The more your child reads, the better your child is lidely to perform.
Develop Language Arts Skills Reading develops and promotes comprehension, vocabulary knowledge, and writing skills that students will use in all subject areas. Your child will select and read a wide variety of books independently or as part of a group. After reading, your child will take a computerized quiz that will assess whether your child completed and understood the book. Your child's performance on these quizes will be monitored.
Although there will be plenty of classroom incentives to keep students working toward their goals, we need your help, too. Discuss the books your child reads. Read aloud after dinner. Talk about books you're reading. If you make reading a fun part of your daily life, your child is certain to succeed!
