Attendance: Communicating with Parents is from Research School.
This article from The Washington Post explains why and how parents, even if they don’t speak English, can still help their children become better readers in any language:
Deep comprehension means utilizing prior knowledge to dynamically engage with writers and their work.
The process of teaching kids to read better through knowledge acquisition must start early. Data gathered in homes, at schools and in labs show that 1-to-3-year-old children who have conversations with older people learn to read more easily than children who do not.
And it’s not just the sheer quantity of conversation that matters. The information embedded in those discussions shapes unfolding literacy skills. When adults talk substantively about events and objects, children are afforded a significant educational advantage: Their growing bodies of knowledge boost their reading skills.
