A Second Grade Teacher's Guide to Supporting Family Involvement in Foundational Reading Skills

Practitioner Resource

This is a companion to the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) practice guide, "Foundational Skills to Support Reading for Understanding in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade" (ED566956). This guide is organized according to the four recommendations and how-to steps from the WWC practice guide. The activities follow the typical developmental progression through which students learn to read. While teachers may use the guide sequentially, the activities are designed to be used flexibly. Teachers can select activities to share with families based on each student's instructional needs. Some language is repeated throughout a few of the Teacher Scaffolds to ensure ready access to all necessary information and materials.
