In collaboration with your school leaders and teachers, we are eager to support your children’s learning in and out of school. We at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project at Columbia University recognize that you are working tirelessly to support your child’s reading and writing, and we want to help. To that end, we have created free offerings for families. We hope these will bring more joy into home literacy learning. We will be adding to these regularly - see links on right hand side. 

Here’s what we have overall to support you: 

Family Videos 

In these family videos—each less than ten minutes—we draw on a combination of research, classroom experience, and educator knowledge to help you support young people with their reading and writing. Some of these videos show you games to play at home while others help you support phonics, avid reading, writing, study skills, research, vocabulary, or abstract thinking. We’ll add to this collection regularly. You can access these collections via our YouTube Channel or Padlets:  Pr-K-2nd Grade, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-9.   SEE LINK on RIGHT Hand Side. 

Book Collections

Want help finding some books your child will love to read? We’ve curated book collections of all-time and brand-new favorites, designed to hook readers young and old. We have lists for fantasy novels and graphic novels, for high interest series, and even a collection of courses of study for your teen readers. Find these collections here. 
Office Hours for Parents and Caregivers: Ask a Literacy Expert 
Have questions about your child’s reading or writing? Talk over Zoom with Lucy Calkins and experienced Reading and Writing Project faculty. These office hours are free and open to all, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.  Registration information is found  in Links to the Right. .
