Research has proven over and over that children who are read to at home and have parents who involve their children with literature at home are much more successful in school and in life. Lakeshore Learning Materials offers "Take-Home Packs" that the children could take home and do reading activities with their parents each week. These packs include an involving paperback, 4 double-sided write and wipe activity cards, a reading journal and hands-on manipulatives that help students make connections with what they've read. As a result of these take-home packs, students will increase reading comprehension, develop vocabulary, identify story elements and create written responses to text. I teach third grade at South Harnett Elementary School in Bunnlevel, North Carolina. We are located just 15 minutes from Fort Bragg and serve many military children. Many of these kids have just one parent home at a time and need all of the extra support they can receive. In order to make these experiences happen, we will need the set of take-home packs which include 16 titles and the materials listed above. These packs will give my class a wonderful experience with literature at home for an entire school year!
