"What can I do to help my child become a better reader?"
As a Reading Specialist, I hear this question frequently from parents. I created this guide to give parents information, activities, and suggestions for helping their children at home. This guide is perfect for parents because it explains reading concepts in clear, easy-to-understand language. You don't have to be an education professional to understand this parent guide!
There are multiple ways to use this guide. Give this guide to 5th grade parents at the beginning of the school year to help them guide their children in reading at home. Or, give this guide to fourth grade parents at the end of the school year to help them give their children a head start in 5th grade. Depending on your preference, give parents a few pages at a time or all of the pages at once.
Suggestions for use:
* Give this entire guide to parents to allow them to reference it all year or all summer.
* Give out a page at a time with your weekly classroom newsletter.
* Give out parts of this guide at parent-teacher conferences.
* Use this guide to conduct parent orientations, trainings, and/or meetings.
