Our Growing Readers newsletter provides easy-to-use tips to help you support your young readers and writers! 

You’ll find simple ideas for nurturing early literacy skills, as well as guidance on engaging with your child’s school, finding great children’s books, getting the most out of read alouds, building letter-sound awareness, and strengthening fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing skills. You’ll also find lots of hands-on STEM activities.

We encourage schools and PTAs to add these briefs to their parent newsletters, or download, print, and share through your students’ school-to-home packets. Growing Readers is also a great resource for libraries and community literacy organizations.

Just select from the topics here, and start exploring!
