At the end of this year we aim to have many more fantastic readers at Sandy Beach Public School.
Your children could be amongst these fantastic, confident readers.
Why would this be so beneficial?
Students who can read well, have a chance to do well in all other areas they explore. They are not held back and frustrated because they can’t read well.
As parents/carers you can help them in many ways.
1. Read to them for fun – enjoy. Even just 10 minutes per school day = 50 minutes per week = 200 minutes per month = 2400 minutes per year. See it will add up!!!!!!!
2. Encourage them to read. Again 10 minutes per day = 2400 minutes per year 30 minutes per day = 7200 minutes per year. Imagine how well they would be reading over the year.
3. Be involved in their schooling. Children whose parents/carers are part of the team teaching and guiding them do much better at school. Parents/carers are the child’s main teachers and school teachers share that important role during school hours.
4. Borrow regularly from libraries, including our school.We would love to have parents as borrowers as we have a special parents section – Come and check it out. (A list will be provided to those interested just drop us a note via your child). We value our wonderful helpers and would encourage more helpers to join the ranks because it helps free us to offer more services to the students and staff.
*KIDS WHO READ, SUCCEED*
Studies have shown that if we want our children to be successful in school, family involvement is helpful.
