       We read many things in school and at home. In
class we read stories and chapters in our science and
social studies books. In the hallway we read signs like
Exit and Office and School News. After school we
read the name of our bus, and we watch for the Walk
signal when we cross the street. At home, we read
directions when we play a game and when we follow
a recipe to make Mom’s special cookies.
