I hope you all had an amazing break and are well rested for quarter 3. To get back into the swing of things, here is the monthly reading tip to share with your parents:

Play games that utilize reading. Word- and vocabulary-building games like Scrabble or Boggle are great, but many board games provide reading opportunities (even if it’s just the instructions). Crosswords provide opportunities for learning new words and spelling practice, too.
Juegue juegos que requieran lectura. Juegos como Scrabble o Boggle, son juegos de mesa que le dan la oportunidad de leer (aún cuando solo sean las instrucciones). Los crucigramas proveen oportunidades para aprender nuevas palabras y la práctica de deletrear también.


See you Thursday!
