Parent Zone >> Reading
DES we view reading as the most important gift we can teach a child. A child
who reads well and understands what they are reading will improve academically
and socially. There are many opportunities in school for your child to read
including guided reading, ERIC time and Read, Write, Inc. In addition we are
giving your children the opportunity to change their reading book daily, and
receive a library book weekly from our fantastic school library.
can help your child at home by reading their school reading book with them
daily, making sure you support them by asking questions and by giving them your
full attention. We want to encourage parents to read a bedtime story to your
children so you can model how to read. It is a lovely way to end a busy day!
