We also ask that children read at least 5 times a week at home and these reads are recorded in your planner. Planners will now be collected on a Wednesday and reads will be counted. Star Reader will be awarded to anyone who has read 5 or more times. DOJO points will be given for all completed homework. Planners will be sent home on a Thursday. We will change our reading books on a Thursday.
