Why Emphasize Reading Outside of School? What Does the Research Show?

 

*If children read 1 million words a year, then they may add at least 1,000 words to their vocabulary.

 

*We become better readers by READING.

 

*Children who listen to and discuss stories, read MORE!

 

*Children read more when they see others, like their parents and teachers, reading for pleasure.

 

*Students who reported more reading outside of school showed greater achievement in reading.

 

*Children who read more improve both writing and spelling skills

 

 

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORTING ROLE IN HELPING ALL OUR STAR READERS GROW!
