Living Literacy At Home: A Parent's Guide
Dr. Margaret Policastro gives a snapshot of what literacy looks like in today’s classroom and the support on how to make that home-to-school connection.
How to implement:
The joy of reading continues at home — in the kitchen, doing the laundry, painting a room, wherever!
What a wonderful book to share on parent's night, at open house, during parent teacher conferences, and in your newsletter's home. Parents are partners in education and the tips and strategies in this book will strengthen the home-to-school alliance.
Discuss the book in a staff meeting and decide what might be included in the weekly principal's newsletter. Ask your students to share their favorite stories that are read at home. Ask your parents to volunteer and come and read to the class. Children should view their parents as life long learners. You may need to help prepare the parent before, perhaps showing them a few techniques you use to model reading.Have fun! Read together!
