Why a Parent/Child Book Club?
It takes a village to raise a child!" yet sometimes it feels like the entire responsibility is being dumped on the school!
So, I work hard at finding ways to insure that the parents of my students are active participants in their education. A Parent/Child Book Club is a way to train parents to utilize effective literacy skills within the home. The trick is, they don’t know that they are being trained! This makes it nonthreatening, and lowers the affective filter for parents. There is no need for them to get defensive. Instead, parents and children have an enjoyable time with a good book, while the discussions and activities are being led remotely by the teacher.
Give it a try - it's a great way to get everyone involved and make reading a fun, interactive, social activity!
