Throughout the school year, your ELA work will focus on reading, writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary, etc. A part of your ELA work is simply to read. You can read an eReader or on your phone. You can read a book or magazine. Consider reading a graphic novel. Treat younger siblings or cousins by reading them a picture book out loud. Whatever way you choose to accomplish this, read. You cannot improve or grow at something without practicing it on your own.
