20 minutes each night is the time I would recommend.
I will keep a closer look at what you are reading at home. I will look at your reading records every Friday and give them back before the end of the day.
You will need to write about your reading. Get your parents to sign your Reading Record entry.
The easiest way
You might want to simply record brief comments.
I will then know that you are reading and your parents know about your reading.
- Make CONNECTIONS...to other books, to your life, to films/movies
- Write original interesting comments about what you thought about the book...not just about what happened.
- Illustrate your writing sometimes.
