Monthly Archives: March 2018
Reading is celebrated across the nation during the month of March. Oregon-Davis has many activities planned in our buildings, but you can also celebrate at home with your student. Here are some great ways to incorporate reading into the month of March, and beyond.
- Go Book Shopping. This can be done anywhere from Barnes & Noble, Amazon or the library. Ask friends, librarians and teachers for some great book recommendations.
- Get Comfortable. Designate a special spot in your house for reading. Fill it with pillows, blankets and books. It doesn’t have to be big.
- Set Aside Family Reading Time. It is a lot easier to get everyone reading if everyone is doing it together. Set aside a designated amount of time each night. This may include reading a book as a family or everyone reading on their own.
- Celebrate With a Movie. As a family you can choose a book that also has a movie. After you read the book together, you can all settle in and watch the movie together. You can even have a discussion about which one you thought was better and why.
This month students will be taking the ISTEP+ assessment. While teachers have been dedicated to preparing students academically for this test, parents have a role in the test taking process as well. Please make sure your child receives the following on test days:
*Make sure your child gets enough sleep on the night before the test
*Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast
*Keep a positive attitude about assessments
*Talk about the assessment with your child, as this can reduce stress
*Encourage your child to do their best
We wish the best of luck to all students taking the ISTEP+ this month.
