Book Treasure Basket & FREEBIE!

What can parents do with all the little paper reading books their child brings home?  

This "MAGIC" little basket will be a special place at home to keep every book that the students make & read together in the classroom.   As his/her book collection grows, the parent will encourage their child to read one book out of the "Book Treasure Basket" every day for practice at home.

The books the students bring home should have very simple and controlled vocabulary so that the students come to recognize and memorize important "sight words".  Fluency is the key to successful reading.  The more the student reads, the more confident he or she will become in your classroom!

Our favorite back to school "MUST DO" is FREE for you!  
We chose a super hero theme because every kid wants to be a super hero or meet one!!!
