Literacy Boxes in a Pre-Kindergarten Classroom: Exploring Parent-Child Involvement.
Streelasky, Jodi
Canadian Children, v26 n2 p30-33 Fall 2001
A pre-kindergarten program serving poor urban Aboriginal families in Saskatchewan, Canada, used parent-created literacy boxes based on a topic of interest to their child and themselves. It was found that the literacy box experiment encouraged families to come into the classroom to read with their child, allowed the teacher to become more effective, and facilitated friendship and respect between the teacher and families.
