Teachers College Reading & Writing Supports for Families

 

Family Videos 

In these family videos—each less than ten minutes— we draw on a combination of research, classroom experience, and educator knowledge to help parents and caregivers support young people, pre-k to grade 9, with their reading and writing. Some of these videos show you games that to play at home while others help you support phonics, avid reading, creative writing, study skills, research, vocabulary, or abstract thinking. We’ll add to this collection periodically.  We’ve tried to make these accessible and joyful, and to support you in ways that will make a difference for your youngsters.
