As our Title I teacher, it is part of my responsibility to help plan and implement a school-wide Literacy Night. I had the opportunity to meet with our PTA president and our FRC coordinator today to brainstorm for this upcoming event and, needless to say...
I. Am. So. EXCITED.
Seriously, I cannot wait to see it all come together in March!
Are you familiar with Literacy Nights?
Basically, the school puts on an evening of activities that encourage community literacy and emphasizes reading outside of school. As we all know, family engagement is absolutely crucial for student success. And, reading? Also crucial for success. Combining the two and bridging the gap between school and home is what a Literacy Night is all about.
Fortunately, our Literacy Night will coincide with our PTA Read-a-Thon and Read Across America week. Yay!
I don't want to disclose too many details because I want to blog all about it with pictures and ideas afterwards!
Have you participated in or planned a Literacy Night before? Since I'm a Literacy Night novice, I'd love to hear feedback, suggestions, or ideas you might have for me! Please share!
Happy Tuesday :)
