This is a letter I wrote up for any parents or families who want to know strategies when reading at home with their child. I do not give these out at the beginning of school (it tends to be overwhelming and I do not send homework right away).
I usually hand these out at first quarter conferences. At that point, most parents have made some attempt to read to and with their child and have perhaps experienced frustration. They want to know how we read with a new reader at school, so I have written a parent-friendly version of what teachers do to help beginning readers. Hope this is useful! Please leave a review.
