Successful school programs always have a family involvement component. A fundamental fact about kids and reading is that they have to practice. If there is no practice at home, the kids can fall behind.

To determine the effectiveness of the family sessions in improving their children’s literacy skills, comparisons were made between the Kindergarten literacy skills of students whose families participated in the program (the intervention group) and students whose families did not participate (the comparison group). The results suggest that the family sessions had a significant effect on improving key literacy skills for children. Moreover, these effects were demonstrated upon the children’s entry into Kindergarten, as well as later in the school year.
Program participants entered Kindergarten with higher skills in Letter Naming Fluency. Additionally, their performance in Nonsense Word Fluency, Phoneme Segmentation Fluency, and Initial Sound Fluency continued to be significantly higher throughout the school year than that of students in the comparison group. Families provided their children with more assistance in particular literacy skills during the year prior to Kindergarten entry, as a result of their participation in this program.
These findings suggest that providing families with literacy training can improve particular literacy skills in their Pre-K and Kindergarten children that are critical to reading success.
