The purpose of this project was to develop a booklet for parents of struggling readers and writers in which the basic activities of the Reading Recovery (Clay, 1993) program are detailed and the vocabulary that educators use when they teach Reading Recovery is listed. Also included is some vocabulary that is used in the regular classroom. The booklet is a tool for parents to use at home while helping their children with reading and writing. Many parents want to help their children with reading and writing at home but they do not know the best way to help. This project was designed to help those parents.
