PARENT GUIDE

This parent reading guide is a resource from Reading Rockets. They share: "Children who enjoy books and get good support from home tend to “take off” academically when they get to school. It’s never too early to start encouraging their love of reading."

COMMON CORE

Rhode Island schools use Common Core standards to set goals for students in reading. View the guidelines here, divided by grade and learn more about the goals your child is working towards in school, and what goals you want to work towards at home. (In English and Spanish.)
