Writing Parent Pack: Writing About Reading
by Kristina Smekens
NOTE: This is an individually sold section of the Writing Parent Pack. It is included if you purchase the entire The Writing Parent Pack.
The Writing Parent Pack: Writing About Reading is designed to engage parents in activities for writing about reading that are tied to their child’s writing ability and practice. Any type of at-home learning can be beneficial, but when it is directly tied to standards currently being addressed in the classroom, everybody wins.
All the activities in this section of The Writing Parent Pack deal specifically with writing about reading. Teachers choose from differentiated activities based on writing standards and student need to provide take-home activities to reinforce previously taught skills. When the child brings the Writing Parent Pack page back, the teacher can maintain the completed activity in the child’s file, assessing whether or not the child needs additional practice.
This product includes:
- Differentiated Activity Key
- Beginning Reading
- Emergent Reader
- 4 Specific Writing About Reading Activities
- Parent Letter
- 5 Writing at Home Activities
Also available from Smekens Education: The Writing Parent Pack. This complete version includes over 93 take-home writing activities for Topic Development (Ideas), Story Writing (Organization), Specific Vocabulary (Word Choice), Sentence Building (Sentence Fluency), Writing Rules (Conventions), Writing Process, and Writing About Reading.
Grades PreK-5, 17-page downloadable PDF (Acrobat) Document File (Product Note: This is a digital item. A download link will be sent via email after purchase. No physical products will be shipped.)
