Families of our youngest students partner with schools to determine ways that they might together strengthen and reinforce literacy.
I think that it is so import to reinforce reading and writing everyday. Every child should be able to read everyday no matter what. This will help them with there vocabulary. This will also help them to be successful.
An educational study in New York tested CKAL curriculum. According to tests, the curriculum strengthens literacy and reading comprehension among various types of students. Also according to the study, students exposed to this curriculum also showed improvements in other academic areas like social studies and science.

Literacy in our state is definitely an important concept that should be at the highest priority when it comes to education. I am a student in the Scholars' Academy at RVHS in Richland 2, and in a discussion we all agreed that students take 4 years of English classes, and still can't speak the language. We waste precious time going over WHY authors wrote books, instead of HOW authors write books. We over-analyze and disintegrate ambiguous ideas in books, but we never use them to go over the IMPORTANT concepts like grammar, punctuation, usage, capitalization, and vocabulary. English classes consist of too much OPINION , and not enought FACTS. I agree that there should be a creative side to the English classes, but as I said: a creative SIDE. English should be English, not ART.
Reinforcing literacy in children is done by schools, families and the community. The Barbra Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is helping strengthen literary through its 12th annual celebration of reading. During this event, approximately $1.8 million will be spent on local campaigns to providing families and children with instruction that will improve literacy as well as writing skills.

While literacy is important in the early years, it is also critical at the middle level. When students enter 6th grade they face increasingly difficult text and brand new subject specific vocabulary. We need to focus on continuing literacy development through secondary schools. It is vital.
When I was little I learned a lot by looking things up in Encyclopedias
That sounds like a really good program
We make sure that children are engaged when they read. We have story time & the children love it. http://t.co/gYuMjPxC http://t.co/XmrRLh4G
When I was in elementary school we had a program called Accelerated Reader. I started out reading a lot of books so that I could get to go to the accelerated reader day where we got to get out of class and do something fun. It turned out that I really loved reading. This is a great program and should be continued.
