Reading Fluency Brochure - a Parent Handout Great for Parent/Teacher Conferences

 With parent/teacher conferences right around the corner I thought I would share one important handout I give to a lot of my parents during Spring conferences.

Reading Fluency Parent Handout

It seems like this is the time of year where first graders who are fluent readers really start taking off with their reading and children who are struggling with reading fluency really start to lag behind.

Reading Fluency Parent Handout Brochure

Since reading fluency is such an important skill to build, I talk a lot about reading fluency with those parents who have a child struggling in that area during Spring conferences.

Parent Teacher Conference Handouts

I like to give out this brochure because it really helps me discuss what reading fluency is and why it’s important for their child to have.

Parent-Teacher Conference Handouts

This reading fluency brochure is a simple, print-and-go resource to give parents to provide them with information and tips on how to foster reading fluency at home. 

Parent-Teacher Conference Ideas

The inside of the brochure describes what reading fluency is, why it's important, and lists ways parents can help improve their child's reading fluency at home.

Reading Fluency Note for Parents

The back of the brochure gives parents fun sight word activities to do at home with their child to help build reading fluency.

Reading Fluency Handout for Parents

Simply print these two pages front to back then fold the paper to create a tri-fold brochure. 

Handouts for Parents During Conferences

Not only is this brochure helpful to handout and discuss during Parent/Teacher conferences, it’s also great at IEP meetings, RTI meetings, etc.

Reading Fluency Brochure for Parents

I like to attach some sight word flash cards with this handout for a great fluency building homework packet.

Sight Word Flash Cards, Sight Word Parent Notes, & Sight Word Homework Log for Parent/Teacher Conferences

With parent/teacher conferences right around the corner I thought I would share something I always do at my conferences.

Parent Teacher Conference Handouts

I always send home practice pages with parents when I talk to them about their child struggling in a certain area.

Parent Teacher Conference Notes

If that area is handwriting then I send home handwriting practice pages, if it’s in the area of math facts then I send home flash cards, etc.

Since my students are in first grade one of the most common things some of them struggle with is reading fluency.  That is why I send parents home with these sight word practice pages.  They can use these to practice building their child’s sight word recognition at home.

Parents are always so appreciative when they leave conferences knowing they have a game plan in place to help their child improve in the area they are struggling with.

Sight Word Parent Handouts

Here’s a look at my sight word flash card bundle that I send home with my parents.

Sight Word Parent Handouts and Flash Cards

I include a parent note explaining what sight words are and why they are important.

Sight Word Handout for Parents

I also include a whole page of ideas on how they can practice sight words with their child at home AND in FUN ways!

You can also begin to send home this weekly checklist to remind parents to have their child practice their sight words as homework each night.
