Literacy bags can make a real difference. Our children need lots of opportunities to practice reading high frequency words in context. How do you provide addition practice with this? You can have your students work with a parent volunteer, work with a partner, or read to you. However, I still recommend that you send these little readers home so parents can celebrate their child's accomplishments and provide more practice for these young readers! Students are so proud of their new skills and it helps build their confidence.
Convince them and they will believe!
