Reading First-Ohio Resources for Families

As a parent, you know that reading with your child encourages his or her development of important literacy skills. Research has shown that kindergarten through grade 3 is a critical time when children develop a foundation in literacy. In addition to reading, playing games that build reading skills is a fun way to support your child's development.

The Reading-First Ohio Center offers online reading resources for families of children in kindergarten through grade 3. These include:

  • Tips and ideas for reading with your child;
  • Recommended reading lists for families and children;
  • Information on how you can help your child build language and literacy skills;
  • Fun and interactive literacy-based games you can play with your child. Each game is accompanied by detailed instructions, materials and an on-line video showing a family playing the game.

Reading First-Ohio is a federal grant program that helps low-performing, high-poverty school districts implement research-based literacy interventions in kindergarten through grade 3. The Reading First-Ohio Center is a consortium of three universities (Cleveland State University, John Carroll University and the University of Akron) that the Ohio Department of Education contracted with to provide professional development, technical assistance to Reading First districts and online reading resources for families.
