Pinellas County Schools At-Home Reading List KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE
Ensure a brighter and richer future for your child by encouraging him or her to read each day. Reading to and with your child will promote growth in his or her reading ability as well as provide an enjoyable experience that will increase your child’s motivation to read.
A significant growth in reading ability typically occurs in the primary grades. Please spend time reading to and with your
child daily. Encourage your child to read sometimes “all by him or herself,” and at other times to read a book with you.
All children enjoy listening to stories, so please make this activity a consistent part of your daily plan at home for reading success.
To help you and your child select appropriate books, we are providing a list of suggested titles. Pinellas County teachers selected the “√” books as the best examples of the reading expectations at each grade level. One “√” identifies the literary text and “√√” identifies the informational text.
If your child has difficulty reading a book independently, read the book with or to him or her. Your child will need to have this support if he or she is struggling with more than five words on a page or showing frustration.
