You are your child’s first and most important teacher, playing an integral role in your child’s academic success. Reading with your child, even for just 20 minutes a day, is a proven way to promote early language and literacy. We encourage you to implement a few simple strategies at home daily to make a positive impact on your child’s success in school.
Broward County Public schools is dedicated to helping children reach their maximum potential as lifelong learners and proficient readers by third grade. To support language and literacy acquisition at home, the District has developed a Read-at-Home Plan. The purpose of the read at home plan is to provide parents/guardians with guidance and resources needed to help ensure their child is successful in school. This Read-at-Home Plan includes reading and multisensory strategies you can implement at home as part of your daily routine or on-the-go to make a positive impact on your child’s success in school. Multisensory strategies that integrate visual, auditory, tactile (touch), and kinesthetic (movement) learning are included to assist students with understanding new information, learning ways to remember the information, and having more ways to recall it later on.
We encourage you to speak with your child’s teacher and visit the BCPS Literacy Field Guide at http://www.bcps-literacyguide.com/ for additional information and strategies.
