When your child was young, you cradled and snuggled with them to read bedtime stories. You were their hero. You took them on adventures deep into Bear Country, explored curiosities with George, or did the crazy dance with the Wild Things. You may have stuffed your face with the Hungry Caterpillar’s feast or tried exotic green food with Sam I Am. And oh, where you could go with a purple crayon! With each story, your child’s eyes grew wide with wonder, their imagination came alive with fascination and their hearts grew full with satisfaction and contentment.
And now they’re growing – talking and communicating, reading and thinking, creatively dreaming and writing their own life stories. How can you continue to connect with your growing child through reading and writing? As a parent, how can you help your child navigate through and beyond the Common Core standards to develop literacy skills for life-long learning?
You resolve to be your child’s advocate. You are determined to champion their learning development. And yet, the questions linger.
