Family Observance Week December 27th - December 31st
Monday, December 28th-Reading Day: (Hooked on Books)
When is the last time that the whole family gathered in the same room and read? The purpose of Reading Day is to stress the benefits from reading the words on a page. Yes, let's spread the word that reading can be imaginative, relaxing, informative, mysterious, humorous, and much more.
Engage in family reading activities for at least 3 hours. This can be broken up into reading sessions (e.g., six 30 minute sessions, or 3 one hour sessions).
Have each family member read something to everyone (a story, news article, letter, etc).
Read something where each family member alternates reading parts or lines (e.g., a play or skit, a book with different characters, etc).
Independent silent reading in the same room.
Important: Discuss what was read
