Abstract (en)

Literacy learning/teaching can be an unforgettable experience when it is a joint effort between school and home. There are family literacy practices and traditions that can bring about amazing outcomes when they are conjugated with school literacy activities. This article attempts to suggest some possible ways for teachers and parents to work collaboratively to make the journey of becoming literate a much more rewarding path for both children and teachers. The perspectives presented here are based on experiences that some teachers have lived by working with parents, and on some theoretical perspectives. It is an invitation for us, teachers, to reflect upon our literacy practices we promote in our classrooms and think of possible alternatives to make children find reading and writing a meaningful and enjoyable route.

Abstract (es)

El aprendizaje/enseñanza de la lectura y la escritura pueden ser una experiencia inolvidable cuando éstas son el resultado de un esfuerzo conjunto entre la escuela y el hogar. Existen prácticas y tradiciones familiares de lectura y escritura las cuales pueden traer resultados asombrosos cuando éstas son conjugadas con las prácticas de lectura y escritura desarrolladas en la escuela. Este artículo presenta algunas alternativas para ayudar a padres y educadores a trabajar colaborativamente para que el camino de la alfabetización sea una experiencia gratificante tanto para los niños como para los educadores. Las perspectivas que aquí se presentan están basadas en algunas experiencias de educadores que han trabajado conjuntamente con las familias de los niños como también con base en algunas consideraciones teóricas. Esta es una invitación a reflexionar en las prácticas de alfabetización que promovemos en nuestras clases y a pensar en posibles alternativas para hacer que los niños encuentren la lectura y la escritura una ruta significativa y placentera.
