     Read Every Day- R.E.D. Reading Folders

    The R.E.D. (Read Every Day) folder is a part of your child’s nightly reading homework.

    By reading with your child as often as you can and asking the provided questions, you will promote and practice fluency and comprehension skills to support this journey!

    For homework each night, please do the following:

    • Have your child read the books that are in their RED Folder.
    • Please do not allow your child to struggle through the words. Give him/her a chance to decode it, but if they continue to struggle, tell them the word so they can continue reading.  
    • Ask your child 3-4 comprehension questions from the list provided
    •  Read with your child for 15 minutes- This is one step on the reading log. Then just initial the next step in your child's log.  
    • Return the books to school in your child’s RED Folder
    • The RED books belong to our classroom. Please remind your child the appropriate way to treat our books and be sure all books are returned the next day so they can get new books.

    I am so eager to witness the excitement as your child’s ability to read improves and grows this year! Thank you so much for your support!
