Parent-teacher teamwork gets reading results

Keeping in touch with your child's teachers is one of the best ways to encourage reading success. It shows that you're a team and that together you support your child. When discussing reading, address topics such as:

*Your child's reading level.
*Appropriate expectations for your child.
*Books your child can read.
*How motivated your child is to read.
*Ways you can build reading skills at home.
*How to help your child as she reads.
*Reading-related resources for parents.

There are many ways to help your child with reading. I have different supplies available for you to take home and work with your child on their reading. Please contace me if you have any questionsor needs. My hours are Monday-Friday form 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.
