Building A Reader At Home - Parent Handout

Here is the next installment in my parent handout sheets - Building A Reader At Home:


So many parents want to help their child become a better reader but they often want tips and ideas other than "read every night", "ask questions", etc.  In an effort to share reading tips with parents, I created this little handout that would be great to hand out at the beginning of the school year, parent nights, or parent conferences.  When meeting with parents, you might also want to highlight the areas you want parents to work on.

It includes tips such as:
Exploring Books
Reading Every Day
Types of Questions to Ask Readers
How to Make Reading Fun
Being an Example
How to Pick Good Fit Books
Tips for Beginning Readers
Tips for Advanced Readers
