Parent Tool: Shared Book Reading for Vocabulary and Comprehension Development

Project ELITE developed a bookmark that presents a routine for parents to use with their children, based on the PK–3 read-aloud system. The parent and family guide is similar to the steps designed for teacher-led text reading but is modified for a simple and fun way to support literacy and family bonding through book reading. The bookmark guides parents in teaching children new vocabulary words and interacting with children during reading time to support language and comprehension development. The bookmark and training presentation are available in both English and Spanish.
