Parents and volunteers are eager to provide reading support, but they don’t always have the training to make them effective partners.
The Partners Literacy Kit for Parents
• Show parents how to apply reading strategies at home
• Guide parents with expert literacy information in a clear and accessible format
• Reinforce the instruction used in the classroom
• Give students extra practice with material at the right reading level
• Make the valuable home-school connection
How the kit works:
Starting with The Partners Video (DVD) and The Partners Handbook as a foundation, this kit includes some great resources to help parents become at-home teaching partners. The 25-minute video shows parents strategies for helping children learn to read. Live-action demonstrations show adults employing the Six Strategies for Success and using prompting questions with young readers. It also shows parents how to use The Partners Bookmark, a quick reference for the prompts, to support their teaching efforts.
The Seedling Guide to the Partners Literacy Kit for Parents has been developed especially for this kit and works in combination with each of the ten readers. For each reader, the Guide offers helpful suggestions for the entire reading process, from before the book is opened, to after the story is over. When a Child Reads… and When a Child Writes… answer parents’ most common questions about these topics. These resources combined create a great way for parents to develop confidence in their teaching skills!
Promote one-on-one home learning with this parent-friendly kit. Great for lending libraries!
