FAMILY ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITY
[Each month we will provide a short family
engagement activity that you can do with your
family throughout the month. This month we are
going to focus on READING!
20 minutes per night for reading will greatly
improve Reading Growth, but many families
struggle with finding time at the end of a busy day.
Here are some ways to fit in 20 minutes of reading
with your scholar each day:
In the car? On the bus? On the go?
Have your scholar read to you as you travel. Use
these prompts to deepen understanding as they
read:
UPA Scholars Posing
University Preparatory Academy is looking for
scholars!
What do you think will happen next?
Tell me what you just read in your own words.
What is going on right now in the story?
Cooking Dinner?
Have your scholar provide the “entertainment” as
you cook. Allow them to read their books out loud
to you as you prepare the family dinner.
In the Store?
Your scholars can use their reading skills to read
labels and signs while in the store. Ask the
following questions:
Can you use the signs to tell me what items are in
this aisle?
I’m thinking about buying this, can you tell me
what it says? Use your sounds if you can’t figure
out the word.
Also parents, if you are in need of books for
reading, please write a note in the communication
log and we can provide books on your scholar’s
level.
Do you know families that may be interested in
the University Preparatory Academy
experience?
Our classes are filled with rigorous academics,
character and leadership development, and
individualized help for students that are in
need.
We still have seats in Kindergarten, First, and
Second Grade. Interested families simply have
to visit the school anytime between 7:30 and
5:00 pm or call 561-670-1138.
