My Take

I loved that there are targeted audiences for the information. The family resource is a great tool to create the home and school connection and engagement. Parents can read the articles with their children to spark substantive and age appropriate conversations about relevant information that impact the life and health of their family. What is also wonderful is the online articles have a read aloud option. Therefore, struggling readers and/or illiterate parents can still engage with their children. Social and emotionally this is beneficial for the family. Moreover, the parent is more connected with what their child is learning at school and is a great incentive to become more involved with their child's academic progress.

How I Use It

This is a great tool to use as a warm up or a reflection activity. It provides age appropriate information to students. The much of information is offered in an online format or through subscription. You can provide kids at different levels similar information where everyone can participate in discussions and activities.
