Readers at Ballard

    We are intentional at Ballard about knowing your child as a reader. Along with daily reading instruction, interventions, and assessments, we want to see the growth in their reading abilities! Some benefits of reading daily are: Supported cognitive development, Improved Language Skills, Preparation for Academic Success, Developing a Special Bond with your children, Increased concentration and discipline, Improved imagination and creativity, and Cultivating a lifelong love of reading. So, please help us by reading with your children 15-20 minutes every night.
