"Family Time Reading Fun," by Linda Clinard is a clearly written tool for much-needed collaboration among parents, teachers, and students. Parents and other family members want to help children become better readers, writers, and all-around students. Teachers want to suggest activities that will develop literacy at home and in a child's everyday life. "Family Time Reading Fun" encourages literacy development outside of school. It contains: 120 activities - you can be in the car, at home, or in a store. They can be done anytime, or you may need 15 minutes, or an hour. All the activities are FUN and help a child become a better speaker, thinker, listener, reader and writer; Reproducibles - diagrams, grids, game boards, alphabets & more are available and can be used again and again; Influences on Literacy Development - discover why a child may be having a hard time with literacy development.
The influences range from attitude to physical factors, with questions to determine where a child fits; Ten Keys to Literacy - these ten important concepts provide necessary background information to guide children through the activities; and A Positive Outlook - This book encourages teachers and families to choose activities that 'stress a strength and nurture a need.' Every child has literacy strengths that can be built on.
