Dear parents of Y2,
A kind reminder.
It is expected that children read regularly at home, around 10 minutes per day, in English and Portuguese, with parental supervision and support IF possible. Please sign the personal reading record every day.
How can I help my child become a better reader?
As everything, performance improves with practice. Encourage your child to read at home. Create a culture of reading in your household by reading with your child, starting a home library, visiting your local library or bookshop on a regular basis, letting your child see you reading and discussing books that each of you have read. When reading with your child, stop and ask questions to be sure your child is comprehending what is read. Reading with your child, no matter what the child’s age, is an important part of developing a good reader, building a lifelong love of reading and learning and creating a loving relationship between you and your child. Make learning a family affair!
