Take 20 Reading Campaign

Reading is “brain food” for our children. Reading “feeds” our children with knowledge and a broad vocabulary. It fosters a love of books and learning.
TPSD is launching a reading campaign this year called “Take 20” encouraging parents/guardians to listen to your K-3rd grader read aloud for 20 minutes nightly and to be sure your child’s daily logs are signed. Look for weekly messages on simple reading strategies via text messaging, FB posts, Twitter posts and on our digital billboards.
Remember, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We thank you for supporting this initiative.

TPSD's "Take 20" Tip of the Week

When listening to your child read aloud, share images you've created in your mind, and talk about which words from the book helped you "draw" your picture. Your picture can relate to the setting, the characters, or the actions. Talk about how the images help you understand story.
