To take one important step to ensure that your home is literacy-friendly, use the Home Literacy Environment Checklist found on the Get Read to Read website.
Print out their Home Literacy Checklist and take an inventory of your home environment and how well it promotes literacy skills. This great tool is available in English and in Spanish.
Get Ready to Read is a great place for parents and teachers to obtain resources to assess children’s literacy including a screening tool, a “Raising Readers” parents video, and some great activity cards.
Teachers: check out all of these great resources and share with your students’ parents!
