Bellerose Avenue School - PARP
PARP (Parents as Reading Partners) is here again and this year’s theme is Read Together, Share History. Beginning January 7th, for the next three weeks, we are asking you to spend time reading with your child, just 15 minutes a day for a minimum of 5 out of 7 days a week. Together we can foster the love of reading and encourage reading at home with a parent or guardian.
What can you read? Anything with printed words! In the spirit of our theme we encourage you to choose from non-fiction books and information texts. Simply put, the purpose of informational text is to convey information about the natural or social world. You and your child will learn about the world together as you dive into question-and-answer books, visual encyclopedias, biographies, autobiographies, non-fiction picture books, reference books, magazines, posters, and pamphlets. Get everyone involved, older siblings, grandparents, and/or caregivers. If you have more than one child participating in this program, then you can all read together.
