A Note About Literacy

 

All of us at Roberto Clemente Middle School understand the importance of literacy. We are here to help your child and you in this process. Below is a list of ideas to help you support your child's journey in becoming a good reader.

  • If you have "closed captioning" on your TV, turn it on and have your child READ as they listen
  • READ to them every chance you get, discuss for understanding.
  • Have them READ to you.
  • When at the store or driving around, have your child READ signs, billboards, labels or directions.
  • Have them write you a note, then have them READ it to you so they connect written words to spoken words.
  • Use games, puzzles, or activities to work with words.
  • Have your child READ comic strips or cartoons. Ask them to draw a cartoon, or continue the "story" of the comic strip.
  • Stay in touch with your child's teacher and get to know all of the coaches at the school. They will support you in this journey of reading.
  • Remember...READING IS FUN!
