Reading is probably the most important homework your child should be doing at the moment.
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.

At the end of your book
You might decide to write at the end of your book.

A daily record
You might decide to write a few sentences every day about your book.

Whatever you do:
  1. Try to read every day for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Write something down in your reading record book every week and give it to me on FRIDAYS.
Want to be an excellent reader?  Try to:
  1. Make other books, to your life, to films/movies
  2. Write original interesting comments about what you thought about the book...not just about what happened.
  3. Illustrate your writing sometimes.
Use the google search bar at the top of the blog to look for more blog posts in 3w

  1. As well as being enjoyable, reading has been proven to be a fabulous way to include your English language skills too. It helps to improve your vocabulary and the sentences you write will become better too.
    So Miss Jane agrees strongly with Mr Ben.
    Read, read and then read some more.
