    Readers are Leaders!

    Every year we join this month-long celebration designed to encourage reading as a fun activity for the whole family.  Reading, and understanding what you read, is a skill that everyone needs to be successful.  The best way to improve understanding is to read a lot.  There is nothing like a challenging book to lift you up or take you to another world.  This is the very reason our media center is designated as “Imagination Station.”(Check out our hallway “street” signs the next time you’re in the building.)  Developing a love of reading will be an asset to your child in all areas of school and give him/her a jumpstart to a lifetime of reading!

    Below is a list of books that your child will enjoy while also reinforcing the 7 Habits at home.  Additional suggestions can be found at The Leader in Me Online.

    Lower elementary (K-3) Read the book together.  Ask your child questions about how the characters used the habits.

    Upper elementary (4-6) Your child reads the book to you.  Ask questions about how your child uses the habit.
