Reading Every Day
The importance of children reading everyday cannot be underestimated or undervalued. Some of the benefits apart from greater knowledge and improving vocabulary include:
- Mental Stimulation
- Stress Reduction
- Memory Improvement
- Improved writing skills
- Better focus and concentration
- FREE ENTERTAINMENT
Children should read or be read to for at least 15-20 minutes a day. This provides enough time for the benefits of reading to occur, without becoming over burdensome and too time consuming. Where possible reading should involve a real book to give students practice with turning pages and reducing screen time. The school regularly rewards students for reading with certificates and prizes and would like all students to read every day.
