Literacy Learning at Home

To extend literacy learning beyond the classroom, create a booklet of ideas that parents can use to make their home print rich. Here are some ideas to include:

>> Make a family job chart to illustrate how family chores will be shared.

>> Involve children in writing lists of things to do or shop for.

>> Use a calendar to mark important upcoming events.

>> Write letters or e-mails together.

>> Sort through mail with your children, allowing them to keep the "junk" mail. (Remember: Children enjoy filling out forms and surveys that come in the mail.)

>> Collect photos of a trip, label them, and place them in a small album. Read these "family books" together.

>> Write children reminders of what needs to be done around the house (clean up toys, water plants, feed pets).

>> Record and read family-related myths, stories, and past events to children.
