How to make familiar reading fun for kids - strategies for parents, caregivers and volunteers! This reading handout is filled with tips for getting and keeping kids motivated to read. Ideal for Meet the Teacher / Curriculum Night presentations, with an explanation page, and a tips and tricks reference sheet for Familiar Reading.
This reading handout has been redone in black and white. If you double-side copy, you can hand out just one piece of paper per person at volunteer trainings, Meet the Teacher or Curriculum Night, or place this information in students' reading folders.
I hope you find this as useful and time-saving as I have over the years!
Thank you in advance, to those of you who generously take the time to leave feedback. Best wishes!
