Parent's Guide to Literacy for the 21st Century: Pre-K through Grade 5.
As parents adapt to meet today's changing definition of literacy, they are often left with many questions about what is happening in their child's classroom. To help address parents' concerns, this guide uses clear, everyday language and classroom examples to explain and illustrate some of the key concepts and terms in literacy acquisition and education. The guide provides a variety of fun and practical activities for parents to do at home with their children, emphasizing the critical role that families play in developing a child's love of language and of learning. It is designed to help parents and educators work together more effectively to prepare today's children for the demands of this new century. Following the Introduction, the guide is divided into these activity sections: Basics; Language; Reading; Writing; Across the Disciplines; and Conclusion. (NKA)
