17Questions & AnswersWhat reading standards and reading behaviors are my child’s teacher focusing on? What is the Reading Continuum and how can I use it to help my child advance to the next stage?The district has designed a parent friendly reading continuum which is very beneficial in helping parents identify their child’s reading behaviors. It includes questions that you can ask, as a parent, each night as you read with your child. For example, at the primary level; does your child read from the top to the bottom of the page with a return sweep? Can your child identify the letters in the alphabet? Does he/she know the sound of the letters in the alphabet? At the intermediate level, question might be: Is you child making connections between different stories they have read? Do they ask you, or themselves questions to clarify meaning of the text Do they creates visual images in their mind as the story progresses? Do they make predictions?If you would like a copy of this continuum, which has many questions to guide your shared reading at home, feel free to contact your child’s school. They will be happy to give you a copy. Generally, the reading continuum is distributed at parent/teacher conferences.(After first click, list times in)

20Questions & AnswersWhat are the areas of Science and Social Studies that my child will be introduced to this year?One of the most useful tools a parent can use to identify content that will be covered by grade level, is the Parent Guide To...

This guide will give you information on what your child will learn in all content areas throughout the year.Building background knowledge in non-fiction is extremely important and makes a huge difference in a student’s ability to make connections with the content they are learning. You, as a parent, can help your child by providing a variety of print materials, conversations and experiences that tie to the Science and Social Studies content for you child’s grade level.Please contact your child’s teacher for other ideas on how you can build your child’s Science and Social Studies knowledge.
