Reading every day is essential for students to acquire new knowledge and experiences from books. A student who reads 20 minutes a day at home will hear approximately 1.8 million words per year. We would like for each of our students to read at least 20 minutes per day at home. Reading may be any material the student selects to read at home. It may be silent reading, reading to a parent/ relative or friend.
