Throughout the school year, your homework will focus on both reading and writing. Your writing homework will vary week-to-week and be introduced in class. However, your reading homework will stay the same. The homework 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.
