Read-at-Home Plan

Research shows that when families are involved in their children's education at home, children do better in school. There are numerous activities and strategies to help your child at home. Just 20 minutes of reading per day can have a huge impact on your child's success in school.

Six Essential Components of Reading

  • Oral Language: The system through which we use spoken words to express knowledge, ideas, and feelings.
  • Phonological Awareness: The understanding that a spoken word is made up of different parts and that each of these parts makes a sound.
  • Phonics: The ability to connect spoken sounds to written letters or words.
  • Fluency: The ability to read accurately with appropriate rate and expression.
  • Vocabulary: The knowledge of words and meanings.
  • Comprehension: The understanding and interpretation of what is read.
