Tutoring Children in Reading and Writing: A Step-by-Step Guide. Book 1: Kindergarten.
Family Learning Association, Bloomington, IN.; ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading, English, and Communication, Bloomington, IN.
Noting that parent involvement could be the single most important factor in children's success in school, this book helps parents act as tutors in reading and writing for their kindergarten children. It offers both general guidelines and specific strategies and activities to use for accomplishing specific objectives, such as improving decoding skills and using comprehension strategies. Activity sheets follow many of the lessons. After a word to parents and an introduction, chapters in the book are: (1) Get Ready To Read and Write; (2) Create an Interest in Reading and Writing; and (3) Help Your Child Learn To Read. A 16-item glossary; tips for tutoring; advice for helping children feel good about themselves; and a list of 57 preschool books, 51 read-aloud books and Internet sites, and 38 predictable books are included.
