RESOURCES FOR PARENTS
Parents often ask us how they can help their child become more literate, and look for guidance from us to help them augment their child’s literacy education at home. These resources will help you reinforce the development of sound reading skills, and complement the tuition they receive at our I Can Read centres.

LITERACY GUIDE #5 : BEGINNING WITH SENTENCES
In this guide, we introduce your child to the notion of sentences.
