Why it is important to read 20 minutes every night!

20 Minutes x 5 years= 608 hours of Reading Success
The more you read, the more you know.
The more you know, the smarter you grow.
The smarter you grow the stronger your voice.
For speaking you mind and making a choice.


Whether they are beginning to read or reading on their own, it is so important for students to read every night. Reading together is a great way to encourage and develop life long readers.
