Semillitas de Aprendizaje Cartitas Series – Letters Home with Family Activities

Managing Editor and Lead Author: Abelardo Villarreal, Ph.D., IDRA. Contributing Authors: Rosana G. Rodríguez, Ph.D., IDRA; Laurie Posner, MPA, IDRA

$20.00

A set of 20 letters (10 English, 10 Spanish) for teachers to send home for parents. Each letter has activities related the Big Book stories, such as great ways to bring the story home like book sharing, the art of play, and healthy traditions in your family. The letters include a section on celebrating heritage and culture and a space for the teacher to share what the child loved to do in school this month.

Using the power of the stories, the Cartitas are designed to share with families how their children are doing in class, to offer practical school-home activities that nurture children’s literacy and numeracy, and to open a channel of communication that values the language, culture and contribution of families, teachers and children.

One set of Cartitas is included in the Semillitas de Aprendizaje Classroom Master Set.
