Please read every day.
Work to increase your reading stamina and focus on different aspects of reading. Reading stamina should be at least 15 minutes in second grade. Experience the book!
Independent reading should be at a "just right" book level. (Guided reading level or one level above with support) Some levels may need to read more than one book a night or read the same book again in "different ways" using strategies.
Books may come home each night from school, the students choose a book at pack up time each day, or you may choose a book from your home or public library collection.
