Thank you for visiting the Parent Resources Page. You are a vital part of your child's reading success, and we want to partner with you to make your child successful. The most important thing that you can do is show your child that reading is important. It is the most important thing that they will ever learn to do. Everything in their life will have something to do with reading. They should read EVERY day. They should see you read EVERY day. There is nothing like putting your child in your lap (or sitting next to them if they are "too old" to get in your lap) and sharing a book. This is where you can have the most impact. Kids who read more have higher achievement. Take a look at what the research says:
Madison City Schools has a wonderful resource for you!! Please visit the Madison City Schools Parent Resource Website to get all sorts of support for helping your child be successful along their elementary path.
Please take a look at these links that will take you to quality resources based on your child's age. Please let me know if I can further assist you in answering any questions or providing support. My goal is to make sure that your child and all of our students are reading on or above grade level by the end of the year.
2nd grade will be such a fun time for your child. This is when they will really perfect those phonics skills and be able to read more fluently. Developing stamina to read is a key part of this year. As they transition to reading more chapter books, their reading world will really expand.
