Product Description

Do parents ever approach you for advice? Their child hates reading, and they don't know what to do.

At least several times each year, parents ask me this question. It's important that teachers are able to answer this question and equip parents with the information they need to grow their children's love for reading. Literacy communication shouldn't stop in middle or high school.

This resource contains two items:

1. A printable handout that I would suggest teachers of all subject areas and all grade levels give parents at the beginning of the year, at parent-teacher conferences, at meet-the-teacher night, at parent-teacher meetings, at the end of the year with students' summer reading lists, or anytime the concern regarding interest in reading arises

2. Two book recommendation pages - one for middle and one for high school - as well as an editable book recommendations page

Provide parents with valuable tips for encouraging a love for reading. Reading should be a life skill...students should read for pleasure, not just for homework!

Then, recommend books you would like your students to read at home, on break, or over the summer to widen their knowledge of literature and to help them appreciate different genres.

I hope these tips help you feel more prepared to have those tough conversations with parents.

You can read more about how teachers can empower parents to develop their children's love for reading in this post.
