Motivates parents and their children to master their reading and writing skills by providing a parallel experience for children ages 5-10 learning alongside their parents or relatives. Depending on their relationship, parents can learn by helping their children, learn from their children who help them, or compete with their children to see who can master the most skills. Offering the same learner control, teamwork and formative feedback as our adult programs, along with a complete Spanish language program for young immigrants transitioning into English, Family Bilingual Literacy fits perfectly into the Family Literacy Solution.

Family Literacy and K-5
Why do only 1/3 of children read at or above their own grade level? How can we help the other 2/3 master their reading and writing skills – the key to success in school, work and life? The answer is, give them a good reason to try – their parents.
When parents get involved in their children’s learning, the children learn more. Let them team up with their children, doing learning activities together, reading together, learning together.
What if their parents aren’t fully literate? Engage them in the exact same process that their children are going through. Give them a parallel experience learning reading, writing, social and emotional skills to better their own lives, and to model learning for their children. Or, let them compete with their children to see who can master their reading and writing skills faster. Either way, let the parent-child relationship carry the burden of providing the motivation, engagement and persistence that it takes to become truly literate.
