dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to examine the effect family has on emergent literacy skills of children and how that can effect academic achievement within the classroom. A qualitative research design was used to examine what home literacy practices parents engage in with their first grade child, how these practices lead to academic achievement and how parents' ethnicity or socio-economic status can effect parental involvement outside of school. The researcher held focus groups for students and surveyed parents about their home literacy environment. The purpose of this research was to understand which students were practicing literacy strategies in their home and which specific strategies they were using. The researcher adapted and modified the questions for the focus group from and used Survey Monkey as a reference and a framework to survey the participants in this study. {from abstract]en_US
