Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Reading -- Parent participation;
This article reviews literature showing the influence of parents on their children's emergent literacy. Children who come from home environments in which they have received frequent and varied experiences with print material have a greater chance of success in school literacy programs. Educators have an obligation to recognize the influence of the home environment when planning and implementing school language arts programs. Classroom teachers can support parents by helping them recognize and use many home literacy opportunities. Ideas are offered for establishing effective teacher/parent partnerships to support children in their emergent literacy.
