Dear Families,
Now more than ever, reading is vital to leading a better life. It’s the door opener to the 21st century for all children. Knowing how to read is just the beginning. Motivating young people to keep reading, comprehend what they read, and develop the ability to think creatively are the end goals.

 Our school is challenging students to read at least 20 minutes a day for 10 days until Oct. 7th at noon. Each class has a treasure chest on a bulletin board in the front of the school. Classes are trying to earn gold coins for each chest.  One coin is equal to 300 minutes of reading. The K-2 class and 3-5 class with the most reading minutes will receive a pirate donut party! The names of the school’s top readers across the school will be placed in a drawing and one will be chosen for a KINDLE donated by Horace Mann Insurance.

 All minutes will be tracked on the scholastic.com/minutes website. Attached to this sheet you will find your student’s log in credentials. Students can log and track every minute they read on this safe, easy to use website! It’s fun, motivating, and it’s absolutely free!

 If you do not have a computer or Internet access at home, see your child’s teacher for a reading log to track minutes. The minutes can be logged at our school later.
You can count time you spend reading aloud to your child. Reading together also strengthens the connection between you and your child. Here are a few ways you can promote reading in your own home:

  • Encourage your child to choose the books they want to read.
  • Share the books that you loved as a kid with your own child.
  • Read aloud with your child. Reading together strengthens the bond between parent and child, and the minutes will count towards his/her goal.
  • Share books that you loved as a kid with your own child.  
  • Be a reading role model. Let your child see you reading.

We hope your family makes reading a big part of your family fun! Please call or email the school librarian, Mrs. Rhyne, with questions about the online tracking system. Rhynes@davie.k12.nc.us
