Welcome to Keeping Kids Connected! This site was created by a classroom teacher as a way to keep kids connected to literacy in the home and at school. In order to do this, parents must be connected to the literacy practices that their children see at school. Today, Keeping Kids Connected is a hub where great reading articles, websites, ideas, and strategies are shared with parents. You are your child's first teacher. Therefore, you have the most influence on what they learn and how they learn. Our hope is that these resources will provide you with a deeper understanding of how young children interact with reading. Please see the tabs at the top of our site for grade-level specific resources. Thanks for stopping by!
