Put Reading First: Helping Your Child Learn to Read. A Parent Guide: Preschool through Grade 3
Partnership for Reading
Preschool and kindergarten teachers set the stage for a child to learn to read with some critical early skills. First, second, and third grade teachers then take up the task of building the skills that children will use every day for the rest of their lives. Parents can help by understanding what teachers are teaching and by asking questions about their children's progress and the classroom reading program. They can also help their children become readers. Learning to read takes practice, more practice than children get during the school day. This paper describes what a quality reading program should look like at school and how parents can support that program through activities with their children.
