Working with the School. Parents and Children Together Series.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading, English, and Communication, Bloomington, IN.; Family Learning Association, Bloomington, IN.
This book, one of a series, discusses how parents can help children by working with the school. The message of this series of books urges parents and children to spend time together, talk about stories, and learn together. The first part of each book presents stories appropriate for varying grade levels, both younger children and those in grades three and four, and each book presents stories on a particular theme. The Read-along Stories in the book are: "The Key into Winter" (Janet S. Anderson); and "Loaf of Bread" (retold by B.K. Sharma and Sharon Pugh). On an accompanying audiotape, the stories are performed as radio dramas, allowing children to read along. The second half of each book provides ideas and guidelines for parents, as well as activities and books for additional reading. Sections in this book are: Working with the School; Parents' Questions about School; The Parent as Model: Early Learning; and Books for Parents and Children. Suggestions include ways to create a relationship with the school that is beneficial to children, ways to become involved, questions to ask, ways to support the school in educating children with disabilities, and activities for skill development. Contains 28 references. (EF)
