In this paper, it is the purpose of the author to develop a parent education program to reinforce selected primary level reading skills in primary students through student-parent activities in the home, school, and community.

Specifically, this program will be designed for parents of primary level participants in the Title I Reading Program in the Baker County School System in Macclenny, Florida. The ideas presented here should be generally applicable to parents of primary level reading students in any setting, taking into account the adaptation to specific local community resources and the consideration of school policies in differing localities in relation to parental involvement in the schools.

The final product will consist of six parent-teacher sessions designed to promote parental profieiency in reinforcing reading skills in the areas of (1) improved attitudes toward education and its relative worth, (2) improved language development in children, (3) improved home study environment, (4) construction of and practice with games and activities for reinforcing selected primary level reading skills, (5) improved nutrition for children, (6) increased student-parent utilization of community resources, and (7) specific classroom tutoring and management techniques.
