Edison Reading Expectation

readEvery student at Edison is expected to read for at least 20 minutes every day after school. This is the BEST thing you can do to become a reader. You can read silently and independently. You can read out loud to a parent or loved one. You can follow along while a parent or another reader reads to you. ALL of these activities count as reading. Read short books and long books, fiction and non-fiction. Pick the methods and the materials that interest you. You can be SURE that if you practice reading every night, you WILL become a good reader! This is 100% GUARANTEED!
