Take Home Bags To Promote Reading

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!

I am trying something new this year. I am sending home a reading folder with an emergent reader and sight words inside. Feel free to visit my blog post to take a look.

I like your colorful spines - they dress up copied books and make them seem more like "real" books.

Thanks for the post. My students think it is so cool that they can read the little readers we send home already to keep in their "Book Treasure Bucket". During the week between school and home the students will read the book at least 5 times. Amber ~ Kindergarten Rocks Blog

My kids love your books but I wish I had more copies to make all of them. It's a drag that we are limited on the number of copies we can make in a year. Keep up on the creative and NEEDED books.

Thank you for your books. My students love them and they are reading because of them. I wish I had the copies I need to really make my reading program what it needs to be. Keep on creating what students need to be successful.
