Literacy Resources for Parents

We often get asked about resources for parents that can be used to support learning at home. We were recently made aware of an excellent resource designed to support parents in helping their children acquire literacy skills. These resources were put together by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, and are organized by grade level skills. We encourage you to explore these resources, which include both videos and print materials that provide explanations about the skills, as well as practice activities! You can access this information here: Literacy Resources for Home
