Parent Handbook to Promote Literacy

Your principal has tasked your grade level with the development of a Parent Handbook that can be used during Back to School Night to promote an at-home/school partnership in literacy.

Create two activities that will contribute to the development of each of the following literacy areas in the home:

  1. Phonemic awareness
  2. Phonics
  3. Fluency
  4. Vocabulary
  5. Reading comprehension

For each activity, include materials that would be easily accessible and inexpensive in the home and instructional tips to make the activity successful.

For each of the five literacy domains, research and list free community resources or government agencies that promote family literacy activities or provide free materials. Provide the name, contact information, and a brief description of the services provided by each.

Include a cover page and table of contents.

The Parent Handbook should be 1,000-1,250 words. The use of clip art is also suggested.
