Reading Rockets has developed a set of reading adventure packs to encourage hands-on fun and learning centered around paired fiction and nonfiction books. Parents who read to their children reading comprehension packets pdf and talk about what they are reading together promote a joy of reading and literacy achievement. How can teachers encourage reading at home and support the role of parents as educators?
One way is through the use of our reading adventure packs — a paired set of theme-based fiction and nonfiction books and related interactive activities that kids bring home from school to share with their family. Just assemble everything into a two-gallon zip top bag, and they’re ready to go!
I love the fact that there are clear, accessible, and easy-to-understand suggestions for parents in each PDF. The activities would be fun and educational to link to any book that suits the themes, not just the ones suggested.
Check out our companion website, Start with a Book. What goes into each reading adventure pack? The Reading Rockets reading adventure packs contain the instructions, activities, and bookmarks for you to download and print, for free. We do not sell pre-packaged adventure packs.
Parents, schools, and literacy organizations supply the books, which are widely available though school and public libraries. If you use the reading adventure packs in your classroom, we’d love to get feedback on how well they worked, new theme ideas, or ways to improve the packs. Contact us and select “Reading adventure packs” from the subject field.
