Posted on by Mrs. Stancliff

2016–2017 CCSD Districtwide Survey

We are asking you to complete the 2016‐2017 Parent Survey from November 14 to December 16, 2016. This survey will provide the Clark County School District with valuable feedback that informs the District and schools about your opinions on important school‐related topics. Your input is very important to us. Please complete one Parent Survey for each child attending a CCSD school. For example, in a two‐parent family with three children enrolled in CCSD schools, each parent can take the survey three times (up to a total of six surveys completed).

Why Can't I Skip My Twenty Minutes of Reading Tonight?

Posted on by Mrs. Stancliff

Let's figure it out mathematically!

• Student A reads 20 minutes five nights of every week.
• Student B reads only 4 minutes a night...or not at all!

Some questions to ponder:

• Which student would you expect to read better?
• Which student would you expect to know more?
• Which student would you expect to write better?
• Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary?
• Which student would you expect to be more successful in school....and in life?

How To Read With Your Child

Posted on by Mrs. Stancliff

I found a great article about reading with your child. It is worth your time.

It's pretty natural for parents to ask teachers about how to help their child with reading. The question might come in different forms, sometimes like this... "Hi, I'm Johnny's mom. He's loving third grade. Hey, I've been meaning to ask you about his reading. What can we be doing at home to help him improve?" OR sometimes like this... "Hi, I'm Johnny's mom. He's loving third grade. But doggone it, every time I try to help him with his reading, we end up in a fight. Any tips?"

All readers, from the strugglers to the most avid, can benefit from their parents' involvement. With the huge emphasis on close, critical reading and thinking deeply about texts, how can we take advantage of parents' knowledge as readers, and usually their willingness, to support what we are trying to develop in class?

One thing.
Read out loud with your child.
