Transcript: Bailee Taylor I want to push students and adults to continue reading while enjoying the outdoors. Parents and children are encouraged to bring their favorite childhood books. Even though it is supposed to be based on literature, I want to encourage family bonding through the sharing of our favorite literature while outdoors. FAMILIES!! The location of the family literacy night will be held outdoors. Planning and Preparation Dear Families, The time has come! Family literacy night is coming and I have some questions for you! Where do you and your children enjoy being outdoors? What stories do you remember being your favorite when you were little? Where did you enjoy reading your stories while you were young? If you could choose a place outdoors for your children to read, and explore the outdoors where would you want to take them? Would you like to volunteer to help out with this years family literacy night? If you could return this letter with some simple answers to the question, you will be receiving a final letter with the final details on this years Family Literacy Night! Thank You: Miss.

There was no wind. The trees stood still as giant statues. And the moon was so bright the sky seemed to shine. Somewhere behind us a train whistle blew, long and low, like a sad, sad song. Tonight's Strategies Context clues are the in-text hints that good readers use to find the meaning of new words hhttps://newsela.com/articles/projectsyndicate-droneprivacy/id/12613/ Use your senses to "draw your picture" of the setting, characters or action.

These "mind movies" help clarify information and increase understanding. The images can include any of the five senses. PIZZA Let's Practice!
Transcript: Y White City Elementary welcomes you to Family Literacy Night! X g m 1 p F Unity By Ray A. Lingenfelter I dreamed I stood in a studio And watched two sculptors there, The clay they used was a young child’s mind And they fashioned it with care. One was a teacher: The tools she used were books and music and art. One was a parent With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart. And when at last their work was done, They were proud of what they had wrought. For the things they had worked into the child, Could never be sold or bought. And each agreed she would have failed If she had worked alone. For behind the parent stood the school, And behind the teacher stood the home E Paired Reading Paired reading was first described in 1987 as a form of tutoring between parent and child. Research shows that paired reading for 15 minutes per day, 5 times a week for 6 weeks will improve reading by 6 months. For every month of paired reading you can expect 3 months gain! Can you find 15 minutes a day? Read Aloud Reading to children encourages them to become readers. Exposes children to vocabulary they could not read on their own. Helps develop comprehension skills through “text talk.” Increases fluency through listening. Builds motivation. Read it Again A child may want you to read a book over and over again. A child may want to read the same book over and over again. Research supports many benefits for repeated reading. Helps good and poor readers recall facts which improves comprehension skills. Leads to more sophisticated questioning and insights. For the child reader, it promotes faster reading with greater word recognition and accuracy. C Vocabulary Vocabulary plays an important part in learning to read. Children use the words they have heard to make sense of the words they see in print. They have a much more difficult time reading words that are not already part of their oral vocabulary. Children learn vocabulary when they participate in daily conversation. Spend 15 minutes a day in conversation. Talk in the car. Talk in the store. Talk over dinner. Just talk!

Model good listening skills. Play board games that require conversation (Yahtzee, Monopoly, Scrabble). Teach your child when and how to properly answer the phone.
