I recently had parent-teacher conferences with my teams. Many of the same questions come up - How can I help my child read at home? - and I wanted to provide a resource for parents to refer to when looking for an easy-to-implement strategy at home. I also wanted a resource that was not geared for primary grades, which is mostly what I found online when I searched for such a resource. So, I made my own!
I printed these double sided on brightly colored paper (for some fun) and had them in an eye-catching pile with some candy and goodies at my team table during conferences. Parents were so happy to have something immediate and concrete to take home with them!
I made sure to use literacy-based language instead of "cutesy-ing" it up.
The strategy sections included on this double-sided resource include: Fluency, Decoding, Comprehension, and Vocabulary, which are all essential and reciprocal aspects of reading ability. The strategies are easy-to-use and are written in parent-friendly language for high accessibility. There are also ten tips to encourage readers with example sentence stems and tips.
Hopefully your parents will love this resource as much as mine did!
