Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Emergent Reader Class and Resource for Parents


This course is designed to help parents of beginning (emergent) readers help their children learn how to read and stay interested in reading at home with their family.
I have taught kindergarten for the past 9 years. Through that time, I have learned that parents are at a loss for how to help their student when they get home. Many times it is because students are tired and they would like to play and relax when they get home after a long day at school. The fascinating thing about reading is, that anytime that you spend with your child reading is an opportunity for them to read, and it never has to feel like work! Most students love to read with their families and there are many games and books that will help your child feel like they are playing while they are learning with their parent.

Learning Targets: 
My students (parents) will become more confident to help their student at home.
They will learn the steps to take and what an emergent reader will look and sound like.
They will learn how to talk to their student(s) about what they have read and ask them questions to ensure comprehension.
They will create a few resources that they can use with their student on a regular basis and improve their reading environment at home.
