Murphy Motivator: Just Right Books

The phone call/email Instant Alert will go out tomorrow night Tuesday, December 10th at 6:30pm.

Hello my name is Leta Brey. I am writing today with another Murphy Mustang Motivator. Each Murphy Mustang motivator is from the Murphy staff members sharing something that we find important that we would like to share with you at home. Tonight I wanted to share with you that it is crucial that your child is reading “good fit books” or “just right books”. According to Richard Allington current research indicates that an independent reading level or “good fit book” for children is one that they can remove 99% accuracy. That means if your child is unable to read more than one word on a page, the book is too difficult for him/her to read and grow as a reader. Please remember to have your child read “good fit books”. Thank you for taking the time to listen to this Murphy Mustang Motivator and enjoy a “good fit book” with your child tonight.
