A Compact for Reading & School-Home Links

Established by legislation, A Compact for Reading is "a written agreement among families, teachers, principals, and students to work together to help improve the reading skills of kindergarten through third grade children." A joint effort of the Education Department, the Corporation for National Service, the Los Angeles Times, and Little Planet Learning, this site offers materials designed to help Compact partners set reading goals and provides 400 learning activities to help children accomplish these goals. The activities are grouped in four "School-Home Links Reading Kits" (one kit for each grade level, kindergarten through third grade) and are designed to be used with the Compact for Reading Guide, a detailed handbook (also available at the site) that guides family-school compact teams through the steps of creating and implementing a Compact for Reading. Each of the four grade-specific kits contains 100 activities, organized by reading and literacy skills appropriate to that grade. Categories with multiple activities feature a pull-down menu, and all of the activities are offered in .pdf format.
