Welcome to the MASD Reading Department
MARCH 2020 UPDATE: Parents, are you looking for opportunities to engage your child in reading activities at home? Check out these resources:
early readers: the computer version is always free! (small fee may apply for the app) free for the next few weeks
older readers: check out the article of the week from Kelly Gallagher (high school teacher)
any reader:
Read a book, or magazine, or anything! Talk about what you are reading. 
Track down resources on a topic that is interesting to you. Learn about an interesting animal, how to do a new craft or science experiment, or answer a question that has always made you wonder.
