Parent Workshop Survival Kit: Comprehension

Grades 1-2

This literacy workshop kit is designed to make it easy for you to share and model effective comprehension strategies to the parents of your first and second grade students. Simply follow the teacher script from the Planning Guide CD as you lead parents through the workshop slideshow and model how they can help their children:

  • Preview and make predictions about events in the story
  • Monitor comprehension while reading
  • Develop interpretation skills by thinking beyond

The Planning CD includes a colorful invitation, reminder flyers, parent evaluations and a sign-in sheet. Each parent will also walk away with a Take Time to Think Home Literacy Card (workshop handout) to ensure that the strategies are effectively implemented at home and increase parent involvement. This literacy workshop can be customized to fit your time frame ranging from 30 minutes to a one hour session.
