Reading at Home

CSD Reading Corner - Reading at Home

Learning to read is a joint effort between families and teachers. Adults can reinforce learning to read and build comprehension at home through structured practices such as:

Dyad Reading

Dyad reading is a research based reading strategy where  two students (or a student and a parent) share one text, sit side-by-side and read together.  To learn how to use Dyad reading at home, watch the following video and download the attached resource.  

Daily Reading

Daily Reading– Read with your student every day for 20-30 minutes. Adults can read to their students, students can read to adults and students can read independently. Guide students through their reading by asking comprehension questions, for example, tell me the names of the characters in the story, or share with me how the text ended.  Use your finger to track under each word when reading with your child. 

    • Make reading part of the home daily routine:
      • First thing in the morning
      • After lunch
      • Before dinner
      • Before bedtime

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
