Above is a small preview of the Prezi we used for our presentation. To have the actual presentation click here.
For the presentation, we used these great handouts from Primary Junction. They provide useful tips to parents for helping their child at home with reading and writing. If you would like a copy of her wonderful product, click here.
We tried to keep the presentation simple and really wanted to drive home the point that you just need to read with your child. Don't make it extra school work and ruin their love of reading. While we knew we could stand up and talk about it all day, the best way to learn something is to see it! We found these awesome videos from Scholastic to show.

How To Read With Your Pre-Teen
I particularly enjoy the video of reading with the pre-teen. It is different from what most people of think of when they think of reading to their child. I think this video in particular inspired many parents.
We also showed the graphic above to really show the difference reading at home with your child makes. It is quite astounding how quickly it all adds up!
To help bring out the parents, we also provided free daycare by the high school National Honor Society and lots of free books to help prepare parents with the right materials to read with their child!
How do you help educate parents about how to help their children?
