Independent Reading Calendar Student Examples | 123Read&Write

The independent reading calendars offered here on 123Read&Write is one of the most influential components in helping your child become a life-long reader. If possible, it's good for an adult or parent to read each day's response prompt, to make sure the child is clear regarding the expectations.  When a monthly reading calendar has been completed, the child (and parent) can be proud that 20+ quality reading exercises have been done throughout the month, making the child a stronger and more independent reader. Additionally, your child will gain the following benefits from following this simple program throughout the year.

-Your child will have a reason for daily independent reading time.

-Your child can improve their connection to any given text.

-Your child gets to choose books at their own comfort level increasing success.
