Pick Good Fit Books

A book that is a good match for your child should meet the following requirements:

  • Purpose for reading
  • Interest
  • Can they understand what they are reading?  Can they retell the story?
  • Do they know most of the words?

Ask Questions

  • Predictions
  • Characters
  • Main Idea
  • Problem
  • Solution
  • Retell Story
  • Genre
  • Moral or Lesson

Make it Fun

Reading shouldn't be a chore.

  • Intentionally read with your child.
  • Together, research topics that interest your child.
  • Do book activities together.

Be an Example

Children learn by example, so let your child see you read whether it be a book, newspaper, magazine, cookbook, etc.


Our classroom is always welcome to pencils, erasers, binder paper, etc.  Your generosity is appreciated.
