You know what reading every day can do for your students and so do we—but what about your students’ parents? Do they understand?
The statistics make it clear. Reading at least 20 minutes a day can change the course of a child’s life and make things that might never have been possible—possible. But statistics and figures only go so far when you’re really trying to get someone’s attention. We think a few heart-felt, from-the-trenches words from the people who know how our children learn best of all—you—might be the most effective tool we could create.
So, will you take a minute to write the one or two sentences you would like every parent to hear about why it matters so much that their children read every day?
Speak from your heart and your experience. Using the responses we get from all over the country, we will create a one-page flyer that you can post in your room, send home with your students, or use however you see fit.
We’ll post it here in the next few weeks.
