Thank you . . . Stay well!!



Dear Parents,

During this challenging time, it is extremely important to keep our students learning and growing as readers and writers.  Here are some links that can help.  Please also check the Reading Recovery document section for tips on working with your students at home.  I have also included a 30 minute individual lesson plan that you can use with any student and any books.

Here are some additional links you might want to try for parent resources.

This company publishes many of the books that I use in Reading Recovery lessons.  They currently have a program where parents can buy a selection of 12 books at their child's reading level for less than $20.00  If you are unsure about your child's level, please check the books in their Reading Recovery bag.  In general, the book level in located on the back of the book, possibly on a school inventory sticker.  Order books that correspond with the highest number level your child is already working with, or purchase books one level higher.

The log-in page for the Virginia Phonemic Awareness and Literacy Screening has a tab for parents.  Click on the tab and scroll down to "monthly activities".  Here you will find several pages with book ideas and activities that you can participate in with your child to help with their understanding of letters, sounds, spelling, etc.

There are also some additional ideas for games and activities under the resources tab on the PALS log on page.  You should be able to access these materials without having a log-in code or password.
