The Reading Improvement teachers at Georgetown Elementary School would like to provide you with some suggestion of how to improve your child’s reading ability. We have included websites that support reading and listed a few of the educational games available for vocabulary and word work.
If, at any time, you have any questions, feel free to contact us at school.
