Reading Resources for Parents

Read at Home Plan - We know that developing readers will give our students the skills they need to succeed at all levels. We need your help. Attached below, please find a WRESA Reading At Home Brochure that details the five essential skills (or pillars) of reading, and specific information about how you can do to help your child develop each of those skills. This brochure is filled with important information that can be used each year as your child grows. We encourage parents to print this brochure and keep it where you can refer to it regularly as you read with each of your children.
