ALSO HAPPENING
 

*Reading Log
Pick up a Reading Log or download and print it at home, color in bubbles for each day you have read. It counts the same if you are reading or someone reads to you. You can read LIBRARY books, eBooks, magazines, audiobooks or books/eBooks/magazines/audiobooks from anywhere else. I would say a reading day is a day you have read 20 minutes or more. You decide, based on your child's ability to sit still and reading skill, if this is a good benchmark at your house. LAST DAY TO EARN REWARDS IS JULY 30.  This is the last day to turn in papers for rewards unless you make arrangements with Miss Kim for an extension.
