It is exciting to be starting our second year of implementing the 100 Book Challenge at Pinewood. I want to extend a huge thank you to our PTSA for funding the purchase of many new books for the 2011-2012 school year. It is wonderful to be putting top quality books into the hands of every child every day. One aspect of this program that I love is that the books are intended to be fast, fun, and easy.
It is our expectation that students read 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes at home every day. We measure our student’s reading practice in STEPS. One STEP = 15 minutes of reading. So each day, Pinewood students will read 2 steps at school and 2 steps at home. Students will be recording their number of steps on their reading logs.
Please take time to enjoy reading with your child throughout this year.
