Classroom Connections of ECI, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, will be giving books to your students during tomorrow’s Drive-Up Food Pantry at Deerfield (3:15-4:15). Students will get to pick their very own books to keep forever to help build your family's home library. Book ownership is one of the most important ways to get your child to read at grade level and to build a love for reading. Tips: - Reading aloud together with your child is a great way to build a child's love for reading. - Try taking turns reading sentences or pages aloud together. - You can play word hunt games while reading, such as asking your child to find words that start with a particular letter. Try asking questions about what is being read. - Designate a least one place in the home to serve as a home library, such as a designated shelf, basket, or drawer for books. - Try ending each day with reading time. Thank you Classroom Connections of ECI and Second Harvest Food Bank!
