The Reading Club is a great way to encourage your child’s reading fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Read on to find out how your child can participate!
The Reading Club is open to all students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. To join, simply start tracking your child’s reading on the Reading Club 20 reading log sheet, found in the Downloads section below. On the log, record the date, the name of the book your child read, and your initials. You can fill in one line for every day your child reads at least 15 minutes. Of course, we are delighted if your child wants to read for more than 15 minutes but please only fill in one line per day. Except...
The second Saturday of every month is a Bonus Reading Day. On Bonus Reading Days, you can fill out one line of the reading log for every 15-minute block your child reads. For example, if your child reads for an hour on a Bonus Reading Day, you can fill in four lines. This is a great way to build up those reading numbers. You can find what days are Bonus Reading Days on the school website calendar and they will be announced in the WAAG too.
We are doing paperless reporting again this year. When your child has completed the 20 Reading Log, scan or photograph it and email it to Mrs MacDougall at email@example.com. Please DO NOT submit the log sheet to your teacher, the office or the library. Keep the original copy at home for your records.
All reading log sheets are available online for you to print at home! No more reminding your child to get a new daily reading log from the teacher. No digging through backpacks and desks or hunting for lost pages. You'll find each reading log you'll need listed in the Downloads section below.
Students will be recognized for reaching various milestones, starting at 100 15-minute reading blocks. In the coming weeks, we will be updating our plan for recognizing other milestones throughout the school year. Watch for further information in the WAAG.
Reading is the key to literacy. The Reading Club is not mandatory but we encourage every child to participate. Any extra time spent reading at home is felt in the classroom and is greatly appreciated.
