We celebrated Family Literacy Night last week. It was a lot of fun! Parents, grandparents, students, little brothers and sisters attended and participated in the activities.
This was our table to welcome families and have them sign in before beginning the fun! We have to turn the signatures in so we want everyone to sign.
When students and their families arrived they stopped by my table to pick up their Scavenger Hunt paper and a pencil. During the scavenger hunt, they read the clues and looked for letters hidden around the school. These letters were then written to finish a Dr. Seuss quote.
So many people have asked me for a Literacy Night Scavenger Hunt! Thank you all so much for your interest in this!
Once students and families finished with the scavenger hunt, each student and sibling got a pretty pencil and Dr. Seuss bookmark. They also received a green raffle ticket for the book drawing!
We had buckets of books for the pre-k to 1st graders and second and third graders to put their names into for the drawing. The kids really enjoyed stopping by the tables to look through the books they just might win!
We had a table for the older students and even a bucket of books for their parents to have a chance at winning too! I think the parents really appreciated being included in this.
At another table we asked parents to fill out a parent survey letting us know how we were doing and suggestions for how we could help them (parents).
That night the book fair was also open late so parents could come and shop with their families and buy lots of books.
We also have a Pirate Themed Family Literacy Night Scavenger Hunt:
It was a fun night and a great way to get to know the families! What does your school do for Literacy or Math Nights? I would love to hear about it!
