Literacy Resources K-5

Welcome to our Literacy Page dedicated to the families of students in preschool through grade 5th. 
We want our families empowered with these 3 things. :) 
1) We want to build your advocacy because you are partly responsible for your student's learning and need to advocate for them.
2) We want to build your agency so that you know how to help your student in their learning. 
3) We extend an invitation to you because you are ALWAYS welcome to support your student's learning. 
We are here to help so please let us know what you need!  Reach out Haley Cooprider at [email protected]. Thanks! 
Literacy in IWCS 
This two page document will share more about how and why we teach reading and writing in Isle of Wight County Schools. 
Each reading level in IRLA has a skill card that you can use to practice at home. They are listed below. 
We also have family letters for each level that lists books you can read on that level. Check them out at your local Blackwater Regional Library
Please check out our #isleREAD YouTube Channel that houses several videos to support you and your child with learning to read. 
On the Isle of Wight County Schools YouTube Channel, there is a playlist called Coop's Quick Clips. These quick videos will give you an overview of things like the blue bag, independent reading, conferencing, the IRLA, and how to help your student at home. 
Also, check out the VDOE's webpage for a list of resources here
