•  Reading Rocks!  
         You are the greatest link to your child's success in second grade.  The time you spend working with your child will make a huge difference for them in school.  The single most important thing you can do for your child is to read with him or her on a daily basis.  This can include you reading to your child, your child reading to you, or a combination of both.  Reading in and out of school is your child's most important job!

         Even more important than the actual reading is the conversation that should take place before, during, and after the process.  Before reading, your child can predict what will happen in the story.  During reading, discuss important events in the story.  After reading, your child should be able to retell the story, including the characters, setting, and events from the beginning, middle, and end.
