Happy Holidays/Recent article

Dear Students and Parents:

Happy Holidays!  I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

I wanted to share my recent article with you:

I cannot encourage students enough to engage in leisure reading.  Reading and writing are intertwined.  If students elect not to read, it will come out in the "wash" (i.e. their writing).  On average, students should be reading on a nightly basis.  Parents with Christmas break two weeks away, I encourage you to:

* Put some books in your children's Christmas stockings
* Enforce reading time in your household
* Read along with your children
* Quiz them about the books that they are reading
* Have your children read the newspaper

Then, see how the above pointers influence your learner's grade.
