The new reading incentive program "Reading to the Core" will run from November through May. Your child will be encouraged to read or be read to a minimum of 15 days per month and then they will be entered into a monthly drawing. A monthly bookmark will be sent home for you to keep track of the number of reading days.
"Arithmetic has usually been taught like it's a recipe: Take the raw ingredients (the numbers), follow a series of steps, and end up with a result (the answer). While an experienced baker knows why you cream butter and sugar before adding eggs, then add flour last, a beginner just following the steps is in the dark. They might know what to do, but they can't explain why."
