Help families work more purposefully with their child on his/her reading skills. The pages within this resource will provide you a tool to communicate with your students' families each time that you confer with the student during independent reading time and to let them specifically know what you’d like them to help their child with at home. There are 11 pages to meet the needs of readers at the K-5 grade levels. This may be extra helpful with those who use the IRLA assessment program.
A set of skills for readers in grades K-5 are included. Each page includes the skills for one level of reading. You'll find skills such as: "Point to each word on the page as I read." ; "Read all my sight words." ; "Pay attention to periods, commas, and question marks." ; "Use other words in a sentence to help me understand new words in that sentence." ; "Read words with the endings of: -ed; -ing; -er; -est; -y; -es" ; "Read words with silent letters." ; "Understand and talk about the ways the author said what was said." ; "Determine the meaning of a new word made when an affix (prefixes and/or suffixes) is added to it." ; "Use text evidence to support conclusions." ; "Determine the meaning of a new word when a (grade appropriate) Greek or Latin root is used in a word." ; "Compare and contrast texts in different forms or genres." and many, many more.
Complete the form after holding a one-on-one reading conference with a student, then send it home for families to use as they work with their reader at home. By identifying the specific skills that the reader needs to practice, the at-home support may better help with purpose and focus.
