Parent Guides

Active parental involvement has been found to positively impact student learning (Senechal, 2006 and Hattie, 2009). In order to support stakeholders as they become acquainted with Florida’s new ELA standards, the Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking, the State of Florida has created grade-level specific parent guides. Each parent guide provides a list of recommended books, key learning outcomes, terms for knowledge building, and recommendations for supporting learning at home. The guide also provides tips for parent communication with teachers. The Parent Guides are available for grades Kindergarten -8th in both English and Spanish.
