I really hope that you will help me in encouraging your daughters and sons to read. It doesnít mean that they have to be reading novels every night: magazines, graphic novels, instructional manuals, newspapers, are all sources of printed material that require reading and help to build stronger comprehension skills. There is often a correlation between reading and writing. The more we read, the easier it becomes to write.
For many of the students, writing is a challenge; they donít like to do it and they donít see the purpose. You can help at home by encouraging your child to complete journal assignments. There is a reason behind why journals are one page, front and back, unless otherwise noted: we are working on developing ideas. The more work we do now on an informal level, the easier it will be for students to write formally.
