Ready to Read at Home!!

Hello Everyone!
We believe that the more time spent with books in the hands of our young readers, the greater progress we'll see in their growth as readers.  We also believe with our whole hearts in the home / school connection.  We recommend that our firsties read for at least 10 minutes every evening.  Tomorrow is the day when we will begin sending home books for our kids to read to parents. They will be "just right" books which they have each selected. 
Over the years I have had many parents tell me they aren't sure what to work on, or what to do when their child misses a word, or doesn't understand something.  I have reworked my "Reading With Your Child" note for parents to include what to do before, during , and after the read. I will be sending this home along with the first home reader, and the reading log. 


If you would like a printable of the log and the parent guide, click here

Happy Reading!!
Joyfully!
Nancy

  1. Hi! I am a new follower and LOVE this log, parent letter and directions. It is all explained PERFECTLY! What are the chances that you would revise this a teeny tiny bit to say, "Second Grade" and "second grader? I would sure appreciate it. Thanks for sharing your resources. I am looking forward to getting to know your blog!

  6. These are fabulous! Is there a chance you could make a version that says Kindergarten/kindergartener? That would be so wonderful. We are just about to start sending home readers.

  7. Wow...you have really out done yourself! I am a new Title teacher and you have no idea how helpful your site has been. Being new and it being mid-year I sure do not have the time to make all of the things I need! Your site has been so helpful and it goes right along with my theme. Thank you for your time and dedication!!

  8. Wow, these printables are great. Is it possible to edit these for 2nd grade? Also, instead of 10 minutes of reading each night, could you change to 20 minutes? I would love to give these to parents this school year to stress the importance of having their child read each night. As well as provide them with tips before/during/after reading. Once again, thanks for all of your hard work. If you are able to edit for 2nd grade, I would really appreciate it. My email address is GennieKay@hotmail.com
