Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate how to build a stronger connection between home and school literacy in preschool. To do this, I interviewed parents of my students to talk about the types of activities they do at home with their child. I also wanted to find out what barriers or challenges they face in being involved with their child’s education, and how I can help support them to help overcome the challenges. In doing this, I hope to create a stronger relationship with the families, and learn more about their funds of knowledge in order to bridge the gap between home and school, and build a stronger relationship with the families I serve.
