CRANFORD, NJ - The Cranford Board of Education will host a K-5 Parent Information Session on Using Reading Strategies and the Progression of Mathematical Operations, Thursday March 2, from 7-8:30 p.m., at Orange Avenue School.

The topics covered will include:
Using Reading Strategies When We Read
Learning to read is more complex than we think.  Proficient readers seldom realize the many reading strategies they use to understand texts.  The point of reading is to understand what we read.  It’s not just reading words correctly. In this parent session, Lorraine Madden, K-5 literacy coach, will help you understand the reading process and explain the variety of strategies children need to use to become skilled readers.  If you’re interested in learning how to help your child with the complicated work of comprehension, please attend. 

Comprehension Strategies:
- Monitoring meaning
- Using relevant prior knowledge, or schema
- Asking questions
- Inferring
- Evoking sensory and emotional images
- Determining importance
- Synthesizing
