Raising Readers in Elmbrook

Raising Readers in Elmbrook

Research has proven that family involvement is the number one predictor of early reading success and future academic achievement. The School District of Elmbrook seeks to partner with families in our community who are interested in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to raise a young reader by offering a series of workshops taught by Elmbrook reading specialists and classroom teachers. Past workshops have covered topics of playing with letters and sounds and the power of reading aloud to children.

The Reading League

The Reading League presents a fun, foundational reading TV series for students PreK-3. The show instructs three important underlying components of skillful word reading: phonological awareness, letter names/sounds, and blending sounds to decode words accurately.

What do a dog, a girl, and a robot have in common? First and foremost, Dusty, Dott, and Alphabott are best friends. But they are also reading buddies! Dusty loves to talk, but learning to read is a new skill. With the help of Dott and Alphabott, he discovers that it can be so much fun! Along the way, the friends practice letters, sounds and reading words, improvise stories, get letters from their globe-trotting friend Otto, practice social skills, and so much more. We hope you’ll become a Reading Buddy!
