Why Should I Practice My Reading?
Whether this chart is 100% accurate or not, the sentiment is very true! Students who practice their reading become better students. It's as simple as that. When you think about it, this it true for ALL of us in every aspect of life.
A teacher friend of mine regularly tells families that you "Don't become a piano player by sitting on the piano bench." Also, a person doesn't "...become a great baseball player by putting on the uniform." The idea is this- you must practice each to improve.
If your goal is to become a successful student, then reading on your own is not an option! Practice in school is not enough. Regular practice- even in the summer time- is a must!
