I was very pleased to find this website- LiteracyLearning.net. It advertises itself as ‘a site dedicated to resources for literacy learning and teaching’.
There is a lot of very valuable information for parents related to Reading Recovery.
Parents will be especially interested to read Ways to Help At Home.
There are some ideas that you can use as your child is reading the take-home book, and unjumbling the cut up sentence that comes home each day.
Your own copy of Ways to Help At Home can be downloaded here.
Parents and classroom teachers may also be interested to read A Reading Recovery Lesson.
Each part of the Reading Recovery lesson is explained- Familiar Reading, Reread of Yesterday’s New Book for Assessment, Word and Letter Work, Composing and Writing A Story, the Cut-up Sentence, and the New Book Introduction & First Read. There is quite a bit of ‘teacher talk’ so parents might like to revisit The Lesson page on this blog as it also explains the parts of the lesson without the ‘teacher talk’.
