Night Reader Program
This read-at-home program encourages you as the parent to get involved
your child and that all important skill of reading. Please read
your child every chance you have. Read road signs in the car
signs on sides of trucks and store headings as you pass by. Model
your child by reading the newspaper or magazines at home. Set
some time each week for family "silent reading". This helps your
understand the importance of reading in our every challenging society.
There are several variations of a night reader program.
Information about "reading to your child" should be sent home to
parents as a guide. A folder can be created to assist
students and their parent in the transfer of books from school to home
and back. Versions are available in both English and Spanish for
each component: Folder cover-English
or Spanish; School to Home letter-English or Spanish; and helpful hints-English or Spanish.
Some schools have a reading incentive program called Night
Reader. Your child can earn a book of their choice when they turn
a completed reading sheet.
Each sheet must contain 15 books read before it is submitted to the
teacher. At the end of each school month, two students from each
level will be selected from the reading slips to celebrate with a
This program also works hand in hand with the Pizza Hut Book-It Program.
During the months of October -March each year, Pizza Hut offers a pizza
for completed reading sheets. When your child turns in their
sheet for these months, the classroom teacher will complete the pizza
and you and your child can redeem the coupon for an individual size
at our local Pizza Hut. A classroom chart will be displayed for
child to watch his/her reading progress. This encourages each
to get involved!
At the close of the school year, each child who has accomplished the
level goal for reading (kindergarten is 15 sheets), will be rewarded
a special reading T-shirt!
