Thank you for looking at our SPARK Bags! Families SPARKing Together, "Strategy Practice And Reading is Key" was designed to give families practice with the reading strategies that you work on throughout the year. Often parents are unsure of the vocabulary that we are using in the classroom as it relates to reading instruction and this is a tool that will help bridge that gap. We also all know that a strong home-school connection is so important.
**This packet has been revised so each packet can be made in black / white and requires no colored ink if desired.**
Included are 8 strategy packets; the strategies addressed are:
Each packet contains an explanation page that tells about the strategy in simple terms. There are also 2 task cards for the families to complete together. This gives the parents a chance to learn more about each strategy and actually see it in action. The first task card for each strategy is ready and complete "as-is." The second task card will require some teacher prep. Directions to set up monthly SPARK packets and a parent letter are included. Packets can be sent home 8 times throughout the year (roughly one time a month).
