Summer is coming! Sending home an informative tri-fold brochure with your recommended summer reading lists is a good way to help parents learn how to better support their child's literacy learning experiences at home. Not all parents are aware of how they may partner with teachers to encourage and support their child's literacy development.
Whom is this directed at:
Parents and Caregivers
Who should be passing it out?
Teachers, Librarians, Home Visitors, etc.
End of school year (with a reading list - check back soon for my reading lists)
Beginning of school year (especially in preschools/ kindergartens)
Beginning home visit or during library visits for other professionals.
What this pamphlet contains:
BASICS - Why literacy matters at home.
TIPS on how parents/ caregivers can help their children to read fluently
INFO on how literacy is assessed at school
RESOURCES - Websites which support children's literacy learning.
