Literacy Activities and What Your Child Learns (K-5)

Foundational Reading Skills Parent Guide

The Office of Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development created a guide for parents and guardians to support children outside of school in the areas of print concepts, phonological awareness, and phonics and word recognition. The guide names each skill, gives examples, and offers fun activities and suggestions for practicing each skill. All students in Grades KB2 are assessed on these skills which are aligned to Common Core Reading Standards: Foundational Skills (KB2). The assessments are designed to measure individual growth from Kindergarten to Grade Two. View foundational Reading Skills Parent Guide (PDF)
