Feedback from Jacqueline Tanner (Middle Team Teacher), Parkland School, Palmerston North:
I love using your Reading Together® programme. I see a huge difference in how much children enjoy reading and a difference in parents and children's confidence.
Feedback from parents participating in the Reading Together® programme at Parkland School:
Homework is now a lot less stressful or stressless.
Their child wants to read at home and reading becomes a positive time enjoying books together.
Reading at home is now fun and something both them and their family enjoy.
Parents/caregivers are more aware of constructive ways of supporting reading.
Parents/caregivers are clearer that their role is to encourage their child to read and enjoy books together, rather than their child "getting it right" and reading "word perfect".
