Product Description
**Note: This product is currently designed for second grade. If there is an interest, I will gladly alter the product to fit your grade level needs!**

Do you ever hear the question from parents, "How can I help my child read at home?" And then, immediately think to yourself...{Oh. My. Where do I begin?}

This product stems from this very situation!

The Parent Guide to Reading {for Second Graders} is a resource that may be used in a number of ways!

This document offers suggestions for parents covering topics such as:
~ Common Core State Standards for Fictional and Informational Text at the second grade level (in parent friendly language!)

~ Accuracy Tips and Strategies including descriptions of predictable and unpredictable vowel teams, flip-flopping the sound, cross checking, blends, digraphs, covering up parts of a word, focusing on beginning and ending sounds, and skipping a word.

~ Comprehension questions based upon Bloom's Taxonomy

~ Fluency Tips and Strategies including the various dimensions of fluency such as speed, volume, smoothness, as well as noticing punctuation and matching your voice to it. Parent suggestions include choral reading, repeated readings, echo readings, and selecting a goal before the parent and child begin reading together.

Included in this packet:
~ 2 Pages of Teacher Resources explaining different ways to use this product.

~ 4 Pages explaining the fiction and informational text Common Core Standards to parents.

~ 2 Pages for teacher use for student reading conferences and individual student goals.

~ 6 Pages of accuracy tools for parents

~ 5 Pages of comprehension questions for parents to use with their readers.

~ 4 Pages of fluency tips and a graph to track a student's speed.

~ 9 pages of sight word practice using the Dolch Sight Words, Pre-primer through Third Grade. Student flash cards may be made from these files or you may use them as reading lists.

This guide may be used from cover to cover for parents or perhaps you want to print out individual pages to share at conference time targeting specific goals. I typically print out individual pages from this guide and send them home with my students' weekly reading goals. How you choose to use the product is up to you!

This product is in color. However, I have printed this file in gray scale and use it this way in my classroom when handing it out to parents.

If you have any questions, please let me know! I am excited to share this product with you!
