Getting Parents and Children off to a Strong Start in Reading
Imperato, Frances
Reading Teacher, v63 n4 p342-344 Dec 2009
In this article, a reading specialist tells her own story of making parental involvement work with kindergarten children in her school. Using a research-based instructional routine that involves parents and children in repeatedly reading a rhythmical text followed by a brief activity involving letter learning, phonemic awareness, and phonics, this teacher-researcher shares the results of her efforts to help young students become readers.
