December News 

          We are busy getting ready for our One Day Book Fair, which will be held December 14th.  You will receive a letter with a brochure showing some of the books available at the book fair.  There will be preschool books, and books appropriated for older brothers and sisters as well as hundred of books geared toward first through third graders.  Your child will bring home a schedule the week before the fair begins.  Please feel free to come in and shop at your child’s time.  Remember books make great gifts!


November News

FAMILY READING NIGHT is Thursday, November 16th.  Read together, grow together on this night by turning off your T.V. and camping out with a good book.  Email me at jhollingsworth@nlsd122.org and tell me how your family decided to “camp out with a good book.” In the subject line, please type:  Camping Out.   Did you pitch a tent in your backyard and read in it?  Did you read inside and go have an outside fire and roast marshmellows?  One lucky family will be picked to receive $15.00 of free merchandise from the book fair in the Spring.   I believe that reading is one of the most valuable gifts families can share, and books always make great gifts.

     Instill a love of books, limit time in front of the television, computer and video games.  Below are fun ways you can help your child become a happy and confident reader.  Try a new tip each week and see what works best for your child. 1) Read together every day.  2)  Say how much you enjoy reading.  3)  Read to your child with a fun voice.  4) Read favorite books again and again.  5) Point out words you see on billboards and other advertisements.

Reading Tips:
1)  Read together every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close.
2) Give everything a name.  This will help build your child's vocabulary by talking about interesting words and objects.
3) Say how much you enjoy reading.
4) Read with fun in your voice.
5) Point out print everywhere. Talk about written words around you.  Ask your child to show you new words as you are on outings.
