A Compact for Reading - February 1999
Sample Letter from Child to Parents
Dear Parent:

Today, I am bringing home my first School-Home Links Reading Kit activity. Several times a week, I will be working on these activities with you. Will you help me with these things?

  1. Help me find a quiet place where I can complete my School-Home Links activity sheet.
  2. Read the instructions with me. I want to do my best work.
  3. Help me if I have difficulty understanding.
  4. Help me to remember to bring my work to school every day.

When I bring a book home from school:

  1. Let's look at the book together. Let me tell you about the pictures.
  2. Read the book with me.
  3. Help me find a place where I can keep my book so it will not get lost or damaged.
  4. Remind me to use a plastic library bag when I carry my book home and back to school each week.
  5. Help me complete my Book Links activity about the book.

Thank you for helping me. It's a lot of fun to share my work with you.
